Stormwater Management Program
Nevada, our surface and groundwater resources are precious commodities.
Stormwater has the potential to carry pollutants from state road right of way
into Nevada's water bodies. That's why NDOT, under our stormwater management
program, works closely with other agencies to help preserve clarity and reduce
pollution in the stormwater and other water runoff from our roads and road
Whether diligently reducing the amount of water quality
impacts from our construction projects, installing water detention systems to
most efficiently channel and provide for the clarity of roadside runoff,
utilizing advanced technology to reduce the amount of salt and sand used on
snowy and icy winter roads, or even building award-winning facilities to
treat water runoff collected during cleaning of Tahoe-area roadside drainage
facilities that will save an estimated $4 million over the next 20 years,
NDOT is dedicated to best stormwater management practices.
Maintaining a Stormwater Management Plan for the Department and meeting or
exceeding the requirements of the National Pollutant Discharge Elimination
System, Municipal Separate Storm Sewer System Permit is the priority goal
for the Water Quality Section. Use the links at the left to learn more.
