Storm Water Management

If you are builder, developer, construction contractor, utility company, or landscaper, you must obtain a storm water permit from the Storm Water Management Division of the City of Fargo Engineering Department.

We encourage all construction industry personnel to learn more about the detrimental effects of increased erosion. The runoff of sediment into the storm sewer increases sediment loads in local bodies of water. This affects our drinking water source and also changes animal and plant habitats. 

Extra sediment in the city's storm sewer system will raise the risk of neighborhood street flooding and add to already high maintenance costs.
