NPDES Water Quality Permit/Program

The City’s goal is to protect water quality by reducing the amount of pollution that runs off lawns, parking lots and streets. Urban areas, including Elmhurst, that collect stormwater runoff in municipal storm sewers and discharge it into creeks and rivers are required to have a permit under the federal Clean Water Act.”
