Arlington National Cemetery's Stormwater Program

Municipal Separate Storm Sewer System (MS4) Permit

Arlington National Cemetery (ANC) has a municipal separate storm sewer system permit regulating stormwater discharges through its outfalls. The Virginia Stormwater Management Act, the Virginia Stormwater Management Program (VSMP) Permit regulations and the Clean Water Act regulate these stormwater discharges as point source discharges.

Chesapeake Bay Total Maximum Daily Load (TMDL) Action Plan

ANC’s Chesapeake Bay TMDL Action Plan provides the means and methods that ANC has implemented, or plans to implement, to meet the pollutant of concern (total phosphorus, total nitrogen, total suspended solids) reductions required by the MS4 permit.

Annual Reports

The MS4 permit requires small MS4s to submit annual reports to the Virginia Department of Environmental Quality. These reports document the status of compliance with permit conditions.

MS4 Program Plan

The Virginia Stormwater Management Act, the Virginia Stormwater Management Program (VSMP) permit regulations and the Clean Water Act regulate discharges from municipal separate storm sewer systems (MS4) as point source discharges. Publicly owned systems such as storm drains, pipes, ditches or swales collecting or moving water to surface waters must obtain permit coverage and develop a stormwater management program.

MS4 programs must be designed and implemented to control the discharge of pollutants from storm sewer systems to the maximum extent practicable in a manner that protects the water quality in nearby streams, rivers, wetlands and bays.

The General Permit for the Discharge of Stormwater from Small MS4s regulates stormwater discharges from MS4s, including Department of Defense facilities. The general permit requires small MS4s to develop, implement and enforce a program that includes the following “minimum control measures":

  1. Public education and outreach 
  2.  Public involvement and participation
  3. Illicit discharge detection and elimination
  4. Construction site and stormwater runoff control
  5. Post-construction stormwater management in new development and development on previously developed lands
  6. Pollution prevention and good housekeeping for municipal operations
