The Hamilton County Storm Water District has been established in response to the federally mandated Phase II storm water program.  The Ohio EPA is issuing a National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) general permit that authorizes operators to discharge storm water from small construction activities. 

The Storm Water District represents Hamilton County's commitment to storm water issues.  The District membership consists of 42 of the 49 jurisdictions in Hamilton County including all 12 of the townships.  

We invite you to browse our website to learn more about storm water and the Storm Water District.  New information will continually be added to this website, with the long range goal being a website that can serve as a central repository for all storm water related material.
