The Village of Hoffman Estates discharges stormwater from its storm sewer system under the IEPA General National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System Permit No. ILR40.

As a condition of the permit, the Village is required to set goals for a five-year period in order to reduce pollution to the receiving waters.  These goals are described in the Notice of Intent.

After each program year, the Village must document its status of compliance with and any changes to the Notice of Intent in an annual Facility Inspection Report.  Below is a list of recent reports:

 

Stormwater Management Plan

The Village of Hoffman Estates' General Permit ILR40 requires the Village to develop, implement, and enforce a stormwater management program designed to protect water quality and prevent and reduce pollution from its storm sewer system to the maximum extent practicable.  

To comply with ILR40 Permit requirements, the Village’s Stormwater Management Plan, along with the Notice of Intent (NOI) and Annual Facilities Reports are designed to provide the IEPA and the residents of Hoffman Estates with an understanding of the measures the Village employs to ensure public health and safety by reducing pollution into the receiving waters.

This is achieved through the implementation of six minimum control measures and related best management practices (BMPs) for each.  More details are located in the Village's Stormwater Manangement Plan document.
