STORMWATER ADVISORY TEAM (SWAT): Public Participation Encouraged

RVSS’ stormwater permit requires that the public be provided opportunities to participate in the development of the agency’s Stormwater Management Program. One way for the public to be involved is to participate in the regional Stormwater Advisory Team (SWAT), a group whose purpose is to support and assist agencies with implementation of their Municipal Separate Storm Sewer System (MS4) Permit (the stormwater permit).

  • The SWAT meets quarterly from 10:00-11:30 the third Wednesday of the month in January, April, July, and October at the ODOT office at 100 Antelope Rd.
  • The bylaws provide information on how the SWAT functions.
  • For more information on the Stormwater Advisory Team, please contact the RVSS Stormwater Manager.

The Rogue Valley Stormwater Design Manual can be found on "Stormwater Development Guidelines" page.

Stormwater Management Plan (SWMP)
The MS4 Phase II permit requires that permittees develop a Stormwater Management Plan (SWMP) that describes how they will implement the requirements of the permit. The Public Education and Public Involvement portions of the SWMP was required to be updated by February 28th, 2020. After going out for public comment, RVSS' board approved the revised public education and outreach portion of the SWMP February 19, 2020. All other portions of the 2004 SWMP remain in effect until updated.
