In 1995, the University of Michigan voluntarily applied for and was issued a Phase I NPDES MS4 Permit by the Michigan Department of Environmental Quality. Under this permit, the University created and implemented a SWMP, in compliance with the regulation. In 2001, the University renewed their NPDES Municipal Storm Water Permit MI0053902 and updated the SWMP. The University of Michigan is engaged in many activities aimed at eliminating storm water pollution from campus operations. The Soil Erosion and Sedimentation Control Program and Storm Water Management Plan contain information on the University’s activities and programs.
