Has your community effectively addressed urban stormwater – a major impairment to water quality that continues to hamper efforts to comply with Municipal Separate Storm Sewer System (MS4) permits? ICMA and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency are hosting a 90-minute webinar to explain common problems that inspectors encounter, along with examples of how operators have overcome them. 

We will discuss:

  • Compliance challenges and applying adaptive management as your system progresses from one permit cycle to the next
  • Effective finance and regional coordination approaches with examples from Lancaster, Pennsylvania and Shenandoah Valley, Virginia
  • New tools being used for assessing overall program costs and a new approach for evaluating future capacity needs 
  • A preview of a stormwater financing guide for MS4s and key lessons learned from small to medium-sized Phase II MS4’s
  • Elements of an effective Pollution Prevention (P2) and “Good Housekeeping” program with a multi-divisional approach to implementation


  • Andrew Dinsmore, US EPA Stormwater Team Leader Region 3
  • Joanne Throwe, Director of University of Maryland Environmental Finance Center 
  • Mark Heidecker, MS4 Coordinator at the City of Tallahassee

Audience: Officials who manage MS4s and those who direct work on planning, finance, regulatory compliance, infrastructure building and maintenance, public works, and transportation. 

This webinar is free for the first 250 registrants.
