MACo has submitted comments to the Maryland Department of the Environment (MDE) for the next round of Phase I Municipal Separate Storm Sewer (MS4) permits. In Maryland, ten counties are subject to this federally-mandated stormwater permit: Batlimore City and Anne Arundel, Baltimore, Carroll, Charles, Frederick, Harford, Howard, Montgomery, and Prince George's Counties. The permits are ultimately overseen by the United States Environmental Protection Agency, but MDE has the delegated authority to draft and initially enforce the permits.
