Lee’s Summit Seeking Feedback on Stormwater Management

The City of Lee’s Summit will host a public meeting from 6 p.m. to 7 p.m. on Feb. 10 to solicit feedback on the City’s Stormwater Management Plan. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, those wishing to participate may attend the meeting virtually via Zoom. 

The City is in the process of renewing its National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) permit, which requires a Stormwater Management Plan. The NPDES permit program was created by the Clean Water Act to address water pollution and requires municipalities to eliminate unauthorized discharges into the storm drainage system.

The City’s NPDES permit requires the Stormwater Management Plan to include public education and outreach; public involvement and participation; illicit discharge detection and elimination; construction site stormwater runoff control; post-construction stormwater management in new development and redevelopment; and pollution prevention/good housekeeping for municipal operations.

The draft Stormwater Management Plan can be accessed for review at cityofLS.net. In addition to the Feb. 10 public meeting, the City will accept public comments on the Stormwater Management Plan through Feb. 9. A comment form is available at http://bit.ly/stormwaterplan.
