Post-Construction Stormwater Management

The National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) permit program administered by the Iowa Department of Natural Resources (IDNR) requires that agencies meeting certain demographic and environmental criteria obtain from the IDNR an NPDES permit for the discharge of stormwater from a seperate storm sewer system.  The City of Bettendorf has been issued such a permit.  The City's permit is on file at the office of the City Clerk and is also available on-line at the City's website.  
The NPDES program requires individuals who desire to conduct earth disturbing activities related to construction on one (1) acre of land or more, to submit an application to the IDNR for an NPDES General Permit #2 applicants.
As a condition of the City's permit, the City is oblilgated to undertake primary responsibility for administration and enforcement of the NPDES program by adopting a procedure to be followed by all General Permit #2 applicants.
