STORM WATER MANAGEMENT PLAN
The City of Wichita Falls has developed a Storm Water Management Plan (SWMP) as required by the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TECQ) Municipal Separate Storm Sewer System (MS4) Permit TXR040036. The SWMP outlines the goals, strategies and programs formulated to improve water quality, address existing and future conflicts between flooding and development, and preserve and enhance valuable natural resources.
