MS4 Operating Permit Public Hearing

A public hearing will be held on Thursday, April 15, 2021, at the West Plains Public Library, 750 West Broadway, West Plains, MO 65775, at 5:30 p.m., to consider the Missouri Separate Storm Sewer Systems (MS4) state operating permit for 2021 through 2026.

The plan must include measurable goals, interim milestones, and an iterative process for evaluating best management practices (BMPs). Each plan must be placed on public notice as required by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency.

The public hearing will give all interested parties an opportunity to provide input on this matter. Public comments will also be accepted through Thursday, April 15, 2021. The draft plan is available electronically at  or a hard copy may be requested. For further information, please email comments to Michael McMahon, Project Grant Specialists, at
