     We invite you to browse our website to learn more about storm water pollution prevention and the Decatur Storm Water Departments efforts to reduce water pollution.


   Storm water runoff is one of the leading causes of water pollution nationally. Together, we can prevent storm water pollution and keep our communities safe and clean.

   The City of Decatur, Indiana has been mandated by the U.S. Environmental    Protection   Agency to obtain and maintain a permit from the State of Indiana to minimize the impact to surface water quality from urban runoff and maintain the City’s storm water management system.

   The Storm Water Utility Department was formed in January 2004 for administrative services, to maintain this permit, make capital improvements, do field inspections and increase public awareness on storm water pollution problems.
