Storm Water Management

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) issued regulations in 1990 to protect storm water quality in small cities and urbanized areas.  In Texas, the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ) was delegated the responsibility for implementing the regulations, commonly called the Phase II Storm Water Program (see more details on our Storm Water Management Plan page).  The City of Corinth is one of several hundred cities, counties, and other public entities required to develop and maintain a program to protect storm water quality under Phase II regulations.
