The City of Birmingham, while previously a supporting member agency of the Stormwater Management Authority, (SWMA) Inc. in October 2001, was issued a National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) Municipal Separate Storm Sewer System (MS4) Phase I permit required under the Federal Water Pollution Control Act, as amended, 33 U.S.C. §1251-1378, the Alabama Water Pollution Control Act, as amended, Code of Alabama 1975, §22-22-1 to 22-22-14, the Alabama Environmental Management Act, as amended, Code of Alabama 1975, §22-22A-1 to 22-22a-15, and associated rules and regulations adopted there under.  This permit authorizes the City to discharge storm water from its drainage infrastructure in accordance with its approved Storm Water Management Program Plan. Although the City of Birmingham is no longer a member agency of SWMA, it is still bound by permit condition to prepare an annual system-wide report, which must be submitted to the Alabama Department of Environmental Management no later than December 28 of each fiscal reporting year (October 1 to September 30).  The annual report is required to include sections of: Contacts List; Program Evaluation; Summary Table; Narrative Report; Summary of Proposed Modifications; Fiscal Analysis; and Appendices.  The report is a good representation of the state and condition of the City of Birmingham’s stormwater program, including areas where refocus may be needed to improve the overall quality of the City’s receiving waters.
