Municipal Separate Storm Sewer System Permit (MS4)
City Engineering's Stormwater Drainage Team manages the City's Municipal Separate Storm Sewer System Permit Program (MS4). The stormwater permit addresses stormwater quality with an emphasis on controlling and limiting pollutants to the City's drainage system through Best Management Practices (BMPs). More information on various stormwater programs can be obtained by clicking the stormwater links located on the left side of this page.
Maintenance of the City of Colorado Springs' stormwater drainage is performed by the City's Street Division. The Street Division crews perform a variety of tasks including cleaning of inlets, catch basins, and pipes and removal of debris from inlets, culverts, and channels. In addition, crews repair and stabilize streambanks.
