MS4 Program

The MS4 (Municipal Separate Storm Sewer System) Program is required, permitted, and regulated by the state. MS4s are defined as a conveyance or system of conveyances that discharges to waters of the state that is designed or used to collect and convey stormwater. MS4 conveyances in urbanized areas have the greatest potential for polluted stormwater runoff. The goal for Stormwater Utility’s MS4 Program is to improve Warsaw’s water quality through education, coordination, and partnerships. To learn more about MS4s, click here.
