The Environmental & Technical Division is responsible for implementing the City's regulatory programs and meeting compliance strategies of stormwater permits. These programs are primarily focused on protecting water quality in local waterways and groundwater.  Protection of these resources are required through the federal Clean Water Act and Safe Drinking Water Act.

The City’s 3 mandated programs are as follows:

1. The National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) Phase II permit. This permit allows the City to discharge stormwater to local waterways through implementation and compliance with a Stormwater Management Plan.

2. The Water Pollution Control Facilities (WPCF) permit. This permit allows the City to manage stormwater by injection into the ground through implementation and compliance with a Underground Injection Control Management Plan.

3. The Total Maximum Daily Load (TMDL) Implementation Plan. This plan manages the discharge of stormwater that flows overland directly to waterways.

The Environmental & Technical Division works closely with the Stormwater Operations Division.
