Did you know? 

The City of Brentwood is one of more than 96 Tennessee communities that submits a Notice of Intent (NOI) application to the Tennessee Department of Environment and Conservation (TDEC) for coverage under the Tennessee phase II MS4 general storm water permit each year.  Under this permit, the City of Brentwood operates a program to manage the quality of storm water runoff from the storm water drainage system.

What is stormwater runoff?

Stormwater runoff is generated from rain and snowmelt events that flow over land or impervious surfaces, such as paved streets, parking lots, and building rooftops, and does not soak into the ground. The runoff picks up pollutants like trash, chemicals, oils, and dirt/sediment that can harm our rivers, streams, lakes, and wetlands. To protect these resources, communities, construction companies, industries, and others, use stormwater controls, known as best management practices (BMPs). These BMPs reduce pollutants and/or prevent pollution by controlling it at its source.

The program focuses on the following:

  • Public Education 
  • Citizen Engagement
  • Illicit discharge detection and elimination
  • Construction site stormwater runoff control
  • Post-construction stormwater management in new development and re-development
  • Pollution prevention/good housekeeping for county operations
