Stormwater Survey:
In order for the Town’s Stormwater Management Program to be successful, we need the citizens and businesses to be aware of the importance of stormwater. One element of the Town of Morrisville’s National Pollution Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) Phase II Permit and the Jordan Lake Nutrient Management Strategy (commonly known as the “Jordan Rules”) is to perform outreach and education on the importance of stormwater for citizens and businesses in the Town. A part of that is evaluation of our outreach and education program. One means of doing an evaluation is surveying you to see what you know about stormwater. Then perform another survey in the future to attempt to gauge the effectiveness our outreach program over time. This will help us to know what works, or not, in our outreach program; and where to focus our efforts. Please help us out by visiting taking the Survey

National Pollution Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) Phase II Permit

The National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) program, established under section 402 of the Clean Water Act of 1972, provided the framework to regulate point sources of pollutants to receiving streams. The NPDES program established a comprehensive two-phase approach to managing stormwater discharges. Phase I of the program required permits for municipal separate storm sewers (MS4s) serving populations greater than 100,000 people and for stormwater discharges associated with industrial activities. Phase II requirements of the NPDES program applied to all non point source discharges of stormwater from small MS4s with populations less than 100,000. Implementation of the NPDES phase I and II permitting program was delegated to the NC Department of Enviromental & National Resources  (DENR), which designated that Morrisville be brought into the program as an owner of an MS4. Morrisville received their Phase II permit from NCDENR in November of 2005, which must be renewed every five years.

To meet the conditions of its Phase II permit, Morrisville was required to develop and implement a stormwater management program that includes the following minimum control measures (MCMs):

  • Public Education & Outreach 


  • Public Involvement and Participation 


  • Illicit Discharge Detection & Elimination 


  • Construction Site Stormwater Runoff Controls 


  • Post-Construction Stormwater Management


  • Pollution Prevention & Good Housekeeping 

  • Riparian Buffer
