Regional Stormwater Management Program

A Memorandum of Agreement for regional stormwater management, renewed in 2013 between localities and HRPDC, provides guidance and sets forth goals, responsibilities, and key elements of the Region’s cooperative approach to stormwater management. The Hampton Roads Regional Stormwater Management Program is facilitated through HRPDC’s Joint Environmental Committee.

The Regional Stormwater Management Program coordinates actions and leverages funding for technical and advisory assistance to help localities meet the requirements of state-issued stormwater permits. The program includes cooperative initiatives in the following areas:

  • Environmental Education
  • Control of construction site stormwater runoff
  • Management of stormwater impacts associated with post-construction
  • Illicit discharge detection and elimination
  • Municipal pollution prevention
  • Regional cooperative monitoring
  • Regional cooperative data tracking
  • Monitoring of regulatory changes

Information on activities related to Hampton Roads locality Municipal Separate Storm Sewer Systems (MS4s)can be found here:
