Storm Water Management Plan
Rain water that falls within the watershed surrounding the City of Vienna is transported to the Ohio River through a complex conveyance system that includes curbs, gutters, catch basins and storm drains. Flow traveling over land to the stormwater conveyance system can transfer contaminants, such as chemicals (pesticides, fertilizer, oils, etc.) and solids (grass clippings, leaves, trash, etc.) to the receiving stream. In order to reduce the potential of these contaminants reaching receiving streams throughout the state, the West Virginia Department of Environmental Protection (WVDEP) has begun registering Municipal Separate Storm Sewer Sysems (MS4s), such as Vienna, throgugh the National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) storm water program. This program attempts to mitigate contamination through Six Minimum Control Measures:
1. Public Education and Outreach
2. Public Involvement and Participation
3. Illicit Discharge Detection and Elimination
4. Construction Site Runoff Control
5. Post-Construction Storm Water Control
6. Pollution Prevention/Good Housekeeping for Municipal Organizations
The purpose of this site is to inform the citizens of Vienna about the City’s program to address the Six Minimum Control Measures and to provide an opportunity for the community to participate in implenting the procedures to better water quality the region.

Consumer Confidence Reports
What can you do?
As a citizen of Vienna, it is important to know how your activities can affect the storm water system. Your activities can impact our water quality and supply. For example, every time you wash your car or use poison to kill your weeds, when it rains the storm water carries these pollutants into our water system.
To safely dispose of contaminants, the City of Vienna recommends that citizens take trash to the landfill.
Waste Management, Inc.
