Middle Tennessee State University Stormwater ProgramBAS

MTSU is co-permitting with the City of Murfreesboro for their National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) MS4 Permit. This permit is required by the Tennessee Department of Conservation as mandated by the Environmental Protection Agency under the Clean Water Act of 1972.

Middle Tennessee State Univeristy is located at 1301 East Main Street, Murfreesboro, TN 37132-0001 in Rutherford County. Campus spans mainly from Middle Tennessee Blvd., to Greenland Dr., to Rutherford Blvd. and finally to E.Main Street.

The primary goal of this MS4 is to improve the quality of surface waters by reducing the amount of pollutants in the runoff water. Polluted stormwater runoff is commonly transported through Municipal Separate Storm Sewer Systems (MS4s), from which it is often discharged untreated into local waterbodies. To prevent harmful pollutants from being washed or dumped into an MS4, operators must obtain a NPDES permit and develop a stormwater management program.

Phase II requires regulated small MS4s in urbanized areas, as well as small MS4s outside the urbanized areas that are designated by the permitting authority, to obtain NPDES permit coverage for their stormwater discharges.
