Background Discussion
On September 16, 1997, the USEPA issued the first NPDES permit to Manatee County for its county-maintained Municipal Separate Storm Sewer System (MS4).  Manatee County's new Cycle 3 NPDES-MS4 permit was issued on January 1, 2013, which began a new 5-year permit cycle.  This is the Year 4 report, covering the January 1, 2016, to December 31, 2016, timeframe.

  • Manatee County is the lead entity for the NPDES-MS4 permit.  The cities of Anna Maria, Bradenton Beach, Holmes Beach, and Palmetto, along with the Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) District 1 are included as co-permittees.
  • In order to achieve compliance, the County must perform activities outlined in the permit's storm water management program and maintain the required records.
  • Costs of complying with the permit are estimated in the fiscal impact statement (attached).
  • Parks & Natural Resources Department staff assembled county-wide departmental data and prepared the Year 4 Annual Report using the form provided by FDEP.
