MOBILE COUNTY, Ala.  – Mobile County’s Department of Environmental Services posted its draft Stormwater Management Program Plan for a public comment period ending April 18, 2023.

The plan is available for review at

To comment on the DRAFT Mobile County SWMP Plan, please email:

Mobile County is designated by the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the Alabama Department of Environmental Management (ADEM) as an owner/operator of a Phase II municipal separate storm sewer system (MS4). This requires Mobile County to develop a stormwater management program designed to protect water quality and to prevent harmful pollutants in stormwater runoff from entering the MS4 area. Stormwater runoff is rainfall that does not seep into the ground but runs off over our yards, streets, parking lots, and buildings. The runoff then enters our storm sewer system which flows directly into creeks, rivers, bays and the Gulf of Mexico.

Mobile County’s Department of Environmental Services actively takes steps to lessen the harmful effects of stormwater runoff as indicated by the plan.
