MS4 Regulatory Update

El Paso County Stormwater Program is updating the Engineering Criteria Manual (ECM) to incorporate new regulatory changes associated with the County’s Municipal Separate Storm Sewer System (MS4) Permit.  The Department of Public Works is making the  draft proposed changes to the ECM available on the website to allow for stakeholder input from the Colorado Springs Housing and Building Association (HBA) members most affected by the proposed changes.  Staff from the Department of Public Works will work with the HBA members during the months of March and April to finalize the proposed changes to the criteria.  Please note the documents provided below are draft, deliberative documents for discussion purposes only.  Final changes to the Engineering Criteria Manual will be presented to the El Paso County Board of Commissioners in June for final approval and adoption.
