Q. What is the Travis County Storm Water Management Program (SWMP)?

The Travis County Storm Water Management Program (SWMP) is a comprehensive long-range plan of on-going activities performed by the County to prevent and reduce storm water pollution to our streams and lakes. The SWMP is mandated by the Texas Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (TPDES) State regulations for Small Municipal Separate Storm Sewer System (MS4) Operators under the Federal Clean Water Act. Travis County applied for, and was issued, a Permit from the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ) to perform the SWMP activities in the Travis County MS4 area.
