Indiana Stormwater Proposed Bill Goes To Senate


An Indiana Bill (HB 1096) on Stormwater Management, has passed the House and is going for a vote in the Senate. It prohibits cities and other local governments with separate storm sewers (MS4) from having more stringent Stormwater requirements than the Indiana State rule of 1 acre. 

Construction Requirements of MS4

HB 1096 specifically prohibits the person responsible for the development, implementation, or enforcement of the requirements established by a city, town, conservancy district, or other public or private entity that owns, operates, or maintains a regulated municipal separate storm sewer system (MS4) from imposing construction site run-off control requirements more stringent than the construction site run-off control requirements established by the general permit authorized by the article of the Indiana administrative code on the National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) general permit rule program.
