With so many state departments and agencies, it can be difficult to determine exactly who handles a particular issue. Ohio EPA often receives comments or questions about environmental issues that we can’t address because the laws give that authority to other departments.
The Storm Water Technical Assistance Program in Ohio EPA’s Division of Surface Water (DSW) assists communities, developers, contractors, and consulting engineers with controlling the adverse impacts associated with new and existing development, including increased runoff, polluted storm water, stream erosion, and loss of floodplain services.
Storm water is rain and snow melt that runs off the land and enters streams, rivers, and lakes. Runoff from outdoor activities or material storage areas can contain pollutants that can degrade water quality and threaten human health.
