Madison Area Municipal Storm Water Partnership

Rather than submit individual applications to comply with the storm water discharge permit regulations contained in Wisconsin Administrative Code NR 216, 21 municipalities in central Dane County submitted one permit application jointly. The 21 municipalities in the Joint Storm Water Permit Group are:

Cities Villages Towns Other
Fitchburg Madison Middleton Monona Stoughton Sun Prairie Verona Cottage Grove DeForest Maple Bluff McFarland Shorewood Hills Waunakee Blooming Grove Burke Madison Middleton Westport Windsor Dane County UW-Madison

The goal of the municipal storm water discharge permit program is to reduce adverse impacts to water quality in our lakes and streams from urban sources of storm water runoff. The portion of Dane County addressed in this plan is rich in water resources that have been adversely impacted by storm water runoff.

Control of storm water pollution is most effectively implemented when people and organizations understand the impact of storm water pollution, its sources, and the actions they can take to control it. The Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources (WDNR) and the United States Environmental Protection Agency (USEPA) have identified the importance of informing and educating municipalities, the construction trades, professional service providers, and citizens about storm water pollution.
