Stormwater Management Program


In January 2010, the City of Shelby was designated as a Phase II stormwater community. This is a federal designation, regulated by the National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) Phase II Stormwater Program, and required the City to obtain a stormwater discharge permit.

The initial Phase II stormwater permit was received from the North Carolina Department of Environment and Natural Resources (NCDENR) in December 2012 and remains effective for a five-year period.


The Phase II permit requires the City of Shelby to implement a Comprehensive Stormwater Management Program and six minimum measures to reduce stormwater pollutants entering our system.  The six minimum measures are:


  • Public Education and Outreach

  • Public Involvement and Participation
  • Illicit Discharge Detection and Elimination (IDDE)
  • Construction Site Runoff Controls
  • Post-Construction Site Runoff Controls
  • Pollution Prevention and Good Housekeeping for Municipal Operations
