The City of Chandler is required to prepare and maintain a Stormwater Management Program (SWMP) to ensure the City complies with state and federal regulations.
Stormwater is the runoff generated from rainfall. When it rains in urban areas, stormwater runs off buildings and paved areas instead of soaking into the ground. The City’s storm drain system is designed to move that stormwater along conveyances like city streets and gutters where it is directed into storm drains or spillways constructed along the street. Eventually this stormwater is deposited into retention basins, greenbelt areas, parks and lakes within the community.
The City’s SWMP is meant to help residents understand how the City manages stormwater and to educate them on what they can do to reduce pollutants entering the storm drain system.
It’s important to get feedback from Chandler residents to learn where program improvements can be made. The SWMP was recently updated to meet current regulatory requirements and the City is asking residents to participate in the review and implementation of the SWMP.

This announcement starts a 30-day public comment period. The City will then compile the comments, and use the to assist with revising and improving the Stormwater Management Program.
