The Southern Indiana Stormwater Advisory Committee (SWAC) was formed based on partnerships with neighboring entities responsible for implementing stormwater programs in southern Indiana.
Quarterly SWAC meetings are used as a forum for receiving and discussing public input and comment on the issues critical to each community’s SWQMP.
Most recently, the SWAC partnered to initiate development of a Qualified Professional Inspector (QPI) Program. The goal of the QPI program is to provide consistent training for construction site inspectors responsible for inspecting stormwater best management practices (BMPs) installed at active construction sites regulated under Rule 5 (327 IAC 15-5) and Rule 13 (327 IAC 15-13). Details concerning the QPI program are available at the Clark County SWCD site.

What is the Southern Indiana Stormwater Advisory Committee?
The SWAC communities include Clark County, the Town of Clarksville, Floyd County, the City of Jeffersonville, the City of Madison, the City of New Albany, the Oak Park Conservancy District, and the Town of Sellersburg. These municipal separate storm sewer (MS4) communities partnered to establish a joint Stormwater Advisory Committee to guide the development of each community’s Stormwater Quality Management Plan (SWQMP). These partnerships also ensure regionally consistent messages and minimize duplication of effort among neighboring stormwater jurisdictions. SWAC membership consists of key MS4 stakeholders and members of various local constituencies, including members of the public and the construction/development community, as well as local Health Departments and Soil and Water Conservation Districts.
