Stormwater Department

Welcome to the City of Palmhurst Stormwater Department.

U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) authorized the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TECQ) in 1998 to administer the NPDES at the state level under the name of Texas Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (TPDES). The TPDES is primarily conformed by three different permits:

  • industrial Storm Water Permit (TXR050000)
  • Construction General Permit (TXR150000)
  • Municipal Storm Water Permit (TXR040000)
The City Of Palmhurst to comply with this mandate created and implemented a Stormwater Management Plan(SWMP) with the collaboration of Texas A&M University-Kingsville and the Phase 1 Municipal Separate Storm Sewer System (MS4) Lower Rio Grande Valley Task Force (LRGVTF). As part of the SWMP seven minimum control measures (MCM) along with the utilization of best management practices (BMPs) have been implemented to reduce Storm Water Pollution to the maximum extent practicable as required by TCEQ.
