Lorain County's Approach to Stormwater
Local leaders have asked Lorain County Government and their staff to develop and manage a cost-effective program that will comply with the water quality regulations of the United States Environmental Protection Agency (U.S. EPA) and begin to more effectively manage storm water drainage and flooding issues throughout the County.
The Lorain County Stormwater Management District strives to enhance the quality of life in Lorain County by utilizing a watershed approach to meet and maintain the water quality permit requirements of the U.S. EPA, and responsibly address drainage and floodplain management within available resources.
Increased stormwater management practices will improve the water quality in and around Lorain County - creating a better environment for local wildlife and providing future generations with the opportunity to enjoy local waterways while managing the effects of growing development in the County.
