Did you know that the City of Minnetrista is a MS4? A Municipal Separate Storm Sewer System (MS4) is a conveyance, or system of conveyances (i.e., municipal streets, catch basins, curbs, gutters, ditches, channels, etc.) that is designed to collect stormwater and is owned and operated by a public entity, such as the City of Minnetrista. Stormwater from a MS4 is regulated under the National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) MS4 permit released by the MPCA. It is intended to reduce sediment and other pollutants from entering state waters. MS4s must develop a program, known as a SWPPP, to satisfy permit requirements.
The City will be accepting public comment on the Plan through January 1, 2021.
