MS4 - Municipal Separate Storm Sewer System

The City of Waukesha storm sewer system is completely separate from the sanitary sewer.  This allows surface runoff to enter the storm sewer and discharge directly into waters of the state.  The City maintains a Phase II MS4 permit to monitor our efforts in preventing pollutants from reaching receiving waters.
