Storm Water Management

Stormwater management is the practice of efficiently channeling storm waters through the network of drainage pathways, both underground and on the surface within a given community. Additionally, stormwater management seeks to lessen the number of pollutants that are collected as it passes over impervious surfaces and moves into watersheds. 

Several communities in the counties of Berrien and Cass are working together to improve and protect water quality. The Southwest Michigan Planning Department (SWMPC) is the coordinating agency to implement the public education component of the stormwater program.
