Construction Site / MS4 Public Notice of Intent
Construction Site Public Notice
As required in the Indiana Department of Environmental Management (IDEM) Construction Stormwater General Permit regulations, a project site owner must demonstrate that the public has been notified that construction activities meeting the requirements of the permit are about to commence. The regulatory requirements allow the public to be notified by placing the notification on a publicly accessible website of the MS4 regulating entity. Other options include placing the notification in the newspaper with the greatest circulation in the affected construction site area or posting the notification at the project site. Before construction activities for a project site may commence, the website notification must be posted for ten calendar days prior to the submittal of the Notice of Intent to IDEM. The purpose of this page is to provide a public listing within the folders below of project sites regulated by Allen County seeking to obtain stormwater construction permit coverage for land-disturbing activities and to notify the public that land-disturbing activities for these sites are about to commence.
