Stormwater02_000 (1)In January 2010, the City of Shelby was designated as a Phase II stormwater community. This is a federal designation, regulated by the National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) Phase II Stormwater Program, and required the City to obtain a stormwater discharge permit.

The initial Phase II stormwater permit was received from the North Carolina Department of Environment and Natural Resources (NCDENR) in December 2012 and remains effective for a five-year period.

The Phase II permit requires the City of Shelby to implement a Comprehensive Stormwater Management Program and six minimum measures to reduce stormwater pollutants entering our system. For more information on the six minimum measures, please click on one of the following links:

 •  Public Education and Outreach
 •  Public Involvement and Participation
 •  Illicit Discharge Detection and Elimination (IDDE)
 •  Construction Site Runoff Controls
 •  Post-Construction Site Runoff Controls
 •  Pollution Prevention and Good Housekeeping for Municipal Operations
