Middlesboro Stormwater Management Program
To comply with the National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) permit, a federal program that regulates stormwater discharges, the City of Middlesboro has developed programs to reduce the discharge of pollutants carried by stormwater into our local waterways.
What is stormwater?
Stormwater is the term used for water that enters our City’s storm drain system from streets, lawns, roofs, parking lots, and other surfaces after a rainfall event or snow melt. This water then flows untreated into our local streams and creeks that are contained within the Upper Cumberland Watershed.
