Stormwater Infrastructure Slideshow

The City of Superior uses funds from the Stormwater Utility Fee  to maintain existing stormwater infrastructure while planning for and implementing future improvements. The photos shown (to the left) show some of the stormwater infrastructure funded by the Stormwater utility (and grant funds).

Stormwater Management (SM) Permits

The Long-Term Stormwater Management requirement of the City of Superior's WI DNR Stormwater permit seeks to reduce the amount of post construction stormwater and associated pollutants reaching our waterways. This requirement regulates post construction discharges off construction sites of one acre or more of disturbed land. Additionally, the city requires construction sites with less than one acre of land disturbing activity that will result in the addition of 20,000 square feet or more of impervious area, to have a permit.

In accordance with fulfilling the Post Construction Stormwater Management requirement of the WI DNR Stormwater permit, the City of Superior adopted a Post Construction Stormwater Management Ordinance in December 2008, to establish long-term, post construction runoff management requirements that will diminish the threats to public health, safety, welfare, and the aquatic environment.
