Stormwater Protection

St. Joseph Stormwater Protection Program has been put in place to ensure the city complies with state and federal standards regarding stormwater control and treatment. The goal of the program is to raise awareness of the necessity of stormwater protection, help citizens become good stewards of our water, and ensure developments are built in a way that ensures stormwater runoff is controlled and treated before it discharges to streams and rivers. This program will help St. Joseph care for our infrastructure, new developments, and our environment.
