The City of Altoona was issued a National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) permit for the discharge of storm water from our Municipal Separate Storm Sewer System (MS4). If you have any questions, concerns, or wish to file a storm water complaint, please contact Karen Oppelt at 967-5136 or by email at koppelt@altoona-iowa.com.

The Rain Campaign organization provides great information for residential “rainscaping” which includes funding and plant sources for people in the Des Moines Metro area.  You can find more information about the Rain Campaign at https://raincampaign.org/
