What is an NPDES Permit?
The National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) program was established under the authority of the Clean Water Act. The NPDES Permit requires that the City of High Point develop regulations, ordinances, policies, and procedures to implement a Stormwater Program. The purpose of the Stormwater Management Plan is to reduce the discharge of pollutants from the municipal separate storm sewer system (MS4). Learn more about this by visiting our Phase II Stormwater Program page.
