The Clean Water Act defines the City of Frankfort as a Phase II community. Therefore, the City is required to implement programs and practices to control polluted stormwater runoff from entering our waterways.

Minimum Controls & Pollutants

The City of Frankfort has a permit from the Kentucky Division of Water which requires six minimum controls for stormwater:

  • Construction site stormwater runoff control
  • Good housekeeping for municipal operations
  • Illicit discharge detection and elimination
  • Post-construction stormwater management, and pollution prevention
  • Public education and outreach.
  • Public involvement and participation

We want to protect the surrounding waterways we use for drinking and recreation. These six measures help keep pollutants out of our water, such as:

  • Fertilizers
  • Oils
  • Pesticides
  • Salts
  • Sewage
