Reporting Requirements Summary

The City of Lincoln is required by federal law to comply with the provisions of the Federal Clean Water Act. In Nebraska, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency has given the Nebraska Department of Environmental Quality the authority to implement the conditions of the Clean Water Act and the responsibility to insure that municipalities in Nebraska are compliant.

The City of Lincoln complies with the federally mandated regulations of the Clean Water Act through a State-issued National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES permit PDF Document). On December 26, 2012 the City was re-issued an NPDES permit by the State of Nebraska allowing municipal stormwater discharges to local waterways and lakes for the time period 2013 -2017.

The following is a list of programs the City has implemented to comply with the State's requirements for Lincoln's municipal stormwater NPDES permit. Each program (numbered 1-8) has a link to an EPA website to provide a summarized description of the requirements. The items listed below are not inclusive of all efforts made by the City in the 2013-14 fiscal year. The permit year for 2014 ends on December 31, 2014.

This is a summary of the City's efforts that were reported to the Nebraska Department of Environmental Quality for the period beginning on September 1, 2013 and ending on August 31, 2014. Note: the City's fiscal year which ended August 31, 2014, is slightly different than the NPDES permit year for 2014 which ended on December 31, 2014.
