PERMIT REQUIREMENTS
The permit requirements are found in the Permit for Jordan Valley Municipalities UTS000001.  For your convenience the requirement summary is provided. 

The Stormwater Management Program must:
Reduce the discharge of pollutants to the “maximum extent practicable” (MEP);
Protect water quality;
Satisfy the water quality requirements of the Clean Water Act; and

Storm water management programs must include:
Programs for the six minimum control measures(MCM).  Each MCM requires any number of programs demonstrating the MCM is adequately managed;
  1. Public Education and Outreach
  2. Public Participation/Involvement
  3. Illicit Discharge Detection and Elimination
  4. Construction Site Storm Water Runoff Control
  5. Long-Term Storm Water Management in New Development and Redevelopment Control
  6. Pollution Prevention and Good Housekeeping for Municipal Operations
Measurable goals and interim milestones for the development of each program and a measure of success for the implemented programs(i.e. narrative or numeric water quality measure used to gauge program effectiveness);
The person or persons responsible for implementing or coordinating the specific stormwater program.

IMPLEMENTATION
The permit has an expiration date and must be renewed upon expiration.  Renewals generally require MCM programs to be added or revised to satisfy any new requirements.  Program development periods are specified by the renewal permit that requires a program development schedule, including milestones and an expectation of operating programs by the end of the permit period. 

FUNDING
The permit requires the City to secure the resources necessary to meet all requirements and to conduct an annual analysis of the human resource, capital improvements and operation expenditures.  The funding details are elaborated in the Stormwater Utility Budget section.

REPORTING
The permit requires an annual assessment of SWMP program implementation and operational program successes.  The assessment is expected to be included in the SWMP document. 
An annual report submitted on a DEQ standard form including certification of compliance is required October 1st. 
Permit Regulation 2.1.5, 4.5, 5.6

RECORD KEEPING
SWMP supplementary records(interpreted as support documents) must be kept for at least 5 years and made accessible to the public at reasonable times during regular business hours.  Supplementary records need not be submitted to the NPDES permitting authority unless requested.

AMENDMENTS
SWMP amendments are allowed upon notification and approval by the DEQ.  An amendment request must include an written justification, including but not limited to: performance, infeasibility, application, assessments, non-applicability, changes of conditions and so forth.  Amendments may also be required but DEQ audits. 

PENALTIES
The NPDES permit that the operator of a regulated small MS4 is required to obtain is federally enforceable, thus subjecting the Permittee to potential enforcement actions and penalties by the NPDES permitting authority if the permittee does not fully comply with application or permit requirements.  This federal enforceability also includes the right for interested parties to sue under citizen suit provision (section 405) of CWA.
