Phase I, MS4

The City of Indianapolis is a Phase I community and has authority to regulate storm water runoff control from active construction sites and post construction activities within all of Marion County, except for the Cities of Beech Grove, Lawrence, Southport and Speedway. The City of Indianapolis has established provisions in Chapters 100 (policies that address the quality of storm water run-off), 600 (erosion and sediment control) and 700 (design standards) of the city’s Storm Water Design and Construction Specifications Manual that provide detailed requirements for compliance with the local program.

Under an agreement with the City of Indianapolis, the Marion County Soil and Water Conservation District (SWCD) is provided the opportunity to comment on submitted Construction Plans, but the actual review of the plans is conducted by the City of Indianapolis. Once a plan is approved, a copy is required to be submitted to the Marion County SWCD.  As part of the agreement, the SWCD will also conduct site inspections for erosion and sediment control on behalf of the City.

The City of Indianapolis receives a permit fee, separate from that of Rule 5, and issues its own permits for construction activities. Project site owners are still required to submit an NOI letter, proof of publication, permit fee, and Construction Plan approval verification from the review authority (in this case, the City of Indianapolis or their designated agent) to IDEM at least 48 hours prior to the start of land disturbing activities.
