Stormwater Discharge Permitting - Experiences in a Rural Western State.
This chapter presents an evaluation of the performance of the stormwater permitting program in Montana, a rural western state. Stormwater program implementation in rural areas presents different challenges than those encountered in urban areas. The types of facilities, the types of stormwater conveyances, and the resources available to address stormwater may be very different from urban areas. The chapter will discuss: the legal basis for Montana's stormwater program, the types of stormwater discharge permits available, the applicability of the various permits, the compliance activities permittees must conduct, the success of the program in achieving its goals, precautions for stormwater modellers working in Montana and similar areas, and the fee system that supports the program.
