The Columbus MS4 and the Bartholomew County MS4 have committed to work together along with the SWCD, SWMD, Purdue Extension, Health Department, and the Surveyors Office to promote efforts to reduce pollutants discharged into receiving waters.
MS4 is short for “Municipal Separate Storm Sewer System." An MS4 is a conveyance that is owned by a state, city, town, village, or other public entity that discharges to waters of the U.S., designed to collect/convey storm water, not a combined sewer and not part of a publicly owned treatment plant.
MS4's were put in place to help protect our rivers by making people aware of their watershed.
