Preserving Nevada's Waters

Here in 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 projects.

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 Stormwater Division. Use the links at the left to learn more.

National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES)

Truck-Pumping-WaterIn response to the Nevada Department of Transportation’s (NDOT’s) request for a single National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) Municipal Separate Storm Sewer System (MS4) Permit for storm water discharges from all NDOT properties, facilities, and activities, the Nevada Division of Environmental Protection (NDEP) issued to NDOT a statewide NPDES MS4 Permit (NV0023329) (Permit). NDOT has developed this Storm Water Management Program (SWMP) to comply with the Permit requirements and address stormwater pollution related to highway planning, design, construction, and maintenance activities throughout the State. NDOT's Environmental Services Division administers the implementation of the SWMP including annual reporting. Each year, NDOT is required to report the status of the SWMP including any modifications, and the plans for implementing those modifications. They are due October 1 of each year and cover the previous fiscal year activity.
