Salt Lake County is required by Federal and State mandate to implement a Storm Water Management Plan (SWMP) aimed at improving the quality of stormwater runoff. Some elements of the SWMP, such as the Public Information and Education programs, are shared by other agencies.

Salt Lake County has prepared a Guidance Document for Stormwater Management to assist public agencies, developers, engineers, designers and the general public in managing for improved stormwater runoff quality.
