Stormwater Management

The City of Cookeville is one of more than 85 Tennessee communities that has submitted a Notice of Intent (NOI) application to the Tennessee Department of Environment and Conservation (TDEC) for coverage under the Tennessee phase II MS4 general storm water permit. Under this permit, Cookeville has developed a program to manage the quality of storm water runoff from the storm water drainage system. The program will focus on the following:

  • Public Education and outreach
  • Public involvement/ participation
  • Illicit discharge detection and elimination
  • Construction site stormwater runoff control
  • Post-construction stormwater management in new development and re-development
  • Pollution prevention/good housekeeping for city operations
