Stormwater Permit

Stormwater Permit


The Village of Menomonee Falls implements federal and state stormwater quality standards with duties to reasonably manage the quantity of water run-off for regional flood abatement (Municipal Code Sec. 38-201). The Milwaukee Metropolitan Sewerage District (MMSD) limits release rates for development creating more than a minimum amount of new impervious surface, to reduce the probability of increased regional floods as the metropolitan area approaches full build-out forecast for 2050.

The water quality management duties apply to property development disturbing one or more acres and to development that increases impervious surface by 10,000 square feet or more (0.23 acres), unless the site is exempt.
