Storm Water Management Program

Regulatory Background
On October 27, 2014, the City of Burleson received authorization of its Texas Pollutant Discharge Elimination System General Permit from the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality. The general permit requires the City of Burleson, a Phase II Small MS4 (municipal separate storm sewer system), to implement a Storm Water Management Program (SWMP) within the 5 year general permit term. The City of Burleson's SWMP includes best management practices developed for each of the following 5 minimum control measures:
  • Public education, outreach, and involvement on storm water impacts
  • Illicit discharge detection and elimination
  • Construction site storm water runoff control
  • Post-construction storm water management in new development and redevelopment
  • Pollution prevention / good housekeeping for municipal operations
