Stormwater Management Plan - Public Comment is NOW OPEN

University of Nebraska-Lincoln Stormwater Management Plan

The University of Nebraska-Lincoln developed a Stormwater Management Plan (SWMP) in compliance with the university's Municipal Separate Storm Sewer System (MS4) Permit. This permit requires that all permit holders meet stormwater pollutant reductions to improve the health of surface waters.

We welcome comments regarding the Stormwater Management Plan from the entire UNL community. Use the button below to send us your comments by January 31st, 2018.

Comment period extended: Since the Nebraska Department of Environmental Quality has not yet put UNL's Stormwater Management Plan out for public comment, EHS will continue to accept comments from the campus community through April 2018.
