Stormwater & Environmental Team

 

 

Mission Statement

 

The Stormwater Environmental department is ultimately focused on protecting and improving the quality of local water bodies. This is done by implementing flood control systems, water monitoring, and enforcing water-friendly construction practices that follow EPA’s standards. Keeping environmental issues in mind, we strive to keep Rockford’s water safe for recreation as well as use at home.  

 


Stormwater Master Plan

 

The City of Rockford Engineering Division hosted two public meetings to introduce the Stormwater Management Program and ask for feedback from its residents. Below you will find the final comprehensive Stormwater Mater Plan, and corresponding presentation.  The focus of the plan is the importance of a properly managed stormwater system and the goals and strategies identified to improve the health and safety of its residents through the stormwater program.
