The United States Environmental Protection Agency (US EPA) requires communities around the country to address storm water quality, and hence the pollution of our nation’s waterbodies. Carmel is one of nearly 200 of these required communities in the state of Indiana required to develop and maintain a storm water quality program. This program is extremely important to the sustainability of our community. In fact, the EPA now considers storm water pollution to be one of the most significant sources of contamination in our nation's waters.
