The City of Ham Lake obtained a National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System permit from the Minnesota Pollution Control Agency (MPCA), which addresses areas to reduce or eliminate pollutants from storm water runoff.  An important component of Ham Lake’s permit is public education and outreach. Citizens are invited to participate in an annual public meeting and to report concerns or illicit discharges to City staff.  This meeting allows citizens an opportunity to give written or oral input on the program. The City must consider these suggestions and make appropriate adjustments to the program when submitting its annual report to the MPCA.

The meeting will be held at 6:01 p.m. June 19, 2017 at the Ham Lake City Council meeting.  The public is encouraged to submit written comments/concern on the Storm Water Pollution Prevention Plan by June 24, 2017 to City Hall, 15544 Central Avenue NE, Ham Lake, Minnesota  55304.  A copy of the SWPPP will be available for review at City Hall or from the City web site – www.ci.ham-lake.mn.us under Services and Water/Stormwater.  For more information, contact the City at (763) 434-9555.
