Stormwater


You Can Help!
Be a champion for clean water and set an example for your neighborhood. One easy way to help with stormwater pollution is sweeping in the street near your local stormdrain. Cleaning out debris, sediment and leaves after storms or at the end of a season keeps it out of stormdrains. Water in stormdrains, in the main, goes directly into water bodies like Moore Lakes, Locke Lake and the Mississippi River.

Stormwater Pollution Prevention
The City of Fridley’s stormwater system is a small Municipal Separate Storm Sewer System (MS4) permitted through the Minnesota Pollution Control Agency. A Stormwater Pollution Prevention Plan (SWPPP) outlines the activities that the City undertakes as part of this permit. These activities are intended to promote maintenance of water quality to the waters that the City of Fridley’s stormwater system discharges to.

Our MS4 permit application details the steps and plans we have in regards to stormwater management including, but not limited to, public education and involvement. In an effort to give you access to our stormwater permitting requirements in a way that is convenient to you and to comply with Minnesota Pollution Control Agency requirements, we have placed it online. Click here to view/download our annual MS4 permit application/plan details.

If you have any questions, concerns or would like to make comments on these plans or this process, please feel free to email them to Kay Qualley, Environmental Planner, or call (763) 572-3594.
