The NPDES Stormwater Permit Program as established in Section 402 of the federal Clean Water Act  is responsible for the protection of surface water quality through the State by regulating point source discharges of pollutants to surface watercourses.

EPA Region 6 is the regulatory authority for the storm water permitting program in New Mexico.  SWQB assists EPA in the regulation of stormwater discharges by performing inspections on behalf of EPA and by serving as a local point of contact for providing information to operators and other agencies regarding this federal regulatory program.
