Storm Water

See links below for applications for Storm Water Erosion Control plans for commercial and residential.

MDEQ (Mississippi Department of Environmental Quality) issued the City of Richland a permit to discharge storm water into Richland Creek and Pearl River.  The permit required the city to develop a Storm Water Program  for the following controls:

  1. Public Education/Outreach
  2. Public Participation/Involvement
  3. Illicit discharge Detection/Elimination
  4. Construction Site Runoff Control
  5. Pollution Prevention/Good Housekeeping

First time builders in 2010 will require Certification in Erosion Control. For more information contact Harold Johnson in Community Development at 601-420-1600.
