Municipal Separate Storm Sewer Systems (MS4)

On December 18, 2021, IDEM issued a Municipal Separate Storm Sewer General Permit (MS4GP).  The MS4GP replaces 327 IAC 15-13 (Rule 13) which had previously been the Administrative Code that established the permitting requirements for all designated MS4s in Indiana. stormwater

MS4s are defined as a conveyance or system of conveyances owned by a state, city, town, or other public entity that discharges to waters of the United States and is designed or used for collecting or conveying stormwater. Regulated conveyance systems include roads with drains, municipal streets, catch basins, curbs, gutters, storm drains, piping, channels, ditches, tunnels, and conduits. It does not include combined sewer overflows and publicly owned treatment works.

More information about the MS4 General Permit can be found on the Indiana Department of Environmental Management (IDEM) Website.

Stormwater Service Fees and Rates

Every person and organization in Muncie contributes to stormwater runoff, which is why the MSD must dedicate funding to Comprehensive Stormwater Management in order to meet Federal and State mandates. This investment has endless benefits for all Muncie residents and improves the quality of life through improved public health, reduced water pollution, and opportunity for new investments. For this reason, no one is exempt from paying stormwater fees, including churches, nonprofits, schools, and government buildings.
