The Town Boards of the above noted towns will meet to discuss matters relating to the new requirements of the towns' Municipal Separate Storm Sewer System General Permits, as administered and enforced by the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources.

The meeting was called to order at 5:00 p.m.

The Environmental Protection Agency administers the Clean Water Act. EPA requires the DNR to administer and enforce municipal separate storm sewer systems to prevent the discharge of polluted stormwater into bodies of water.

The Act requires the designation of Urbanized Areas. The results of the 2000 Census determined the above noted towns, the City of Fond du Lac and the Village of North Fond du Lac to be an Urbanized Area. With the results of the 2010 Census, the Town of Empire has been added to the Urbanized Area. Empire may be brought into the working group once they complete all the requirements currently met by the original three towns.

Due to the Urbanized Area designation, the Towns, City and Village are required to obtain a Municipal Separate Storm Sewer System Permit (MS4). The DNR issued the original permit in 2006, with an expiration of 2010. The original permit was extended by the DNR annually while the new permit was in development. The new permit was issued 5/1/2014, with an expiration of 4/30/2019.

The group discussed the following permit requirements:

a) ORW-ERW Determination. Determine whether any part of the Town's MS4 discharges to an "outstanding resource water" or an "exceptional resource water" as defined in the Wisconsin Administrative Code. Deadline: July 30, 2014.
b) Impaired Water Body Determination. Determine whether any part of the Town's MS4 discharges to an impaired body of water listed under the Clean Water Act. Deadline: July 30, 2014. If the MS4 does discharge to an impaired water body, the Town must include a written section in its stormwater management program that discusses control measures to reduce or eliminate pollution from that impaired water body. Written section to the added to the Annual Report.
c) Compliance with Laws. Towns must ensure that its stormwater discharges comply with applicable wetland quality standards, endangered and threatened resource protection requirements, and historic property standards. Towns must also prevent stormwater from including oil, grease, toxic substances, nutrients conducive to excessive growth of aquatic plants, and other substances that may impair receiving water.
