Mission Statement

The mission of the Stormwater Management (SWM) division is to advance the quality of life for the citizens of Howard County through the improvement and management of the quality and quantity of water that originates in, falls onto, or passes through the county on its way to the Chesapeake Bay.

The SWM division will accomplish this by:

  • communicating to the public the value of clean water and the ways they can personally improve water quality,
  • monitoring and maintaining our public and private storm water facilities,
  • planning, implementing, and maintaining a program for good water resource management,
  • partnering with individuals, citizen volunteers, local environmental groups, businesses, schools, and other government agencies in an effort to promote beneficial water quality management,
  • responding to public inquiries and complaints in a courteous and timely manner, and
  • evaluating and implementing technologies consistent with stormwater best management practices (BMP's)
