Staff Summary: Background: The National Pollutants Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) Stormwater Program regulates stormwater discharges from three potential sources: municipal separate storm sewer systems (MS4s), construction activities, and industrial activities. Most stormwater discharges are considered point sources, and operators of these sources may be required to receive an NPDES permit before they can 18605 NW 27 Ave., Miami Gardens, Florida 33056 discharge. This permitting mechanism is designed to prevent stormwater runoff from washing harmful pollutants into local surface waters such as streams, rivers, lakes or coastal waters. Stormwater Management is important to our City and neighboring communities. The Miami Gardens Public Works Department is working hard to keep our system maintained and operating to the maximum potential which protects our waterways. The State of Florida Department of Environmental Protection is authorized by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to administer the program through permits. The permits are issued for (5) five years and the City of Gardens was named as a co-permittee through Miami-Dade County in 2012. At that time, Council passed a resolution to approve the first 5-year interlocal water monitoring interlocal agreement expiring this year. As part of being co-permittee and since we have the Stormwater Utility, Miami Dade County performs special services to identify and control these pollutants discharges; therefore, these EPA required services will be done by the County for an annual fee. Current Situation This interlocal agreement with Miami Dade County is the annual cost for Miami Dade County to provide two activities that are essential to the EPA NPDES Requirements. These two activities shall involve testing and monitoring of stormwater discharges into surface waters (Activity #1) and the Best Management Practices (Activity #2) mandated by EPA regulations. After five years, the fees have increased from $18,470 to $22,309. Fiscal Impact The budget for FY 2017 for these services is $17,000; however, there is enough funding from other line items to cover the additional costs. Proposed Action: Recommend Council to approve the proposed resolution approving the County’s 5 Year Interlocal Agreement for providing the professional services to identify and control pollutants discharges in the shared municipal separate stormwater sewer system through Miami Dade County in the amount of $22,309 annually.

Section III Scope of Work The parties hereto agree that the EPA is requiring as part of the NPDES MS4 Operating Permit the sampling, monitoring, and analysis of a variety of storm sewer systems throughout Miami-Dade County. The parties hereby agree that the water monitoring annual costs (Activity 1) attributable to this operating permit shall be shared by those CO-PERMITTEES who elect to participate in this Activity, and the costs shall be based on a percentage rate obtained by dividing the number of outfalls which drain to United States bodies of water existing in the geographical boundaries of each CO-PERMITTEE by the total number of outfalls existing within the geographic boundaries of all CO-PERMITTEES.

Authorization to Represent the CO-PERMITTEE in NPDES MS4 Operating Permit The CO- PERMITTEE hereby authorizes the COUNTY to act on its behalf only with respect to: the activities under this Agreement; and compliance with requirements of those monitoring, sampling, BMP, and BMAP portions under the NPDES MS4 Operating Permit. 2. Attendance at COUNTY Permit Review Meetings. The CO-PERMITTEE may, but is not required to, attend any or all regular meetings held by COUNTY staff for the purpose of reviewing the status of the NPDES MS4 Operating Permit. 3. Responsibility for Discharges The CO-PERMITTEES shall each be responsible for the control, investigation of and remedial activities relating to discharges of pollutants from within their respective MS4 or boundaries to the municipal separate storm sewer system of another NPDES MS4 CO- PERMITTEE, pursuant to the requirements of 40CFR 122.26(d)(2)(i)(D). 4. Identification of Discharges Both the CO-PERMITTEE whose stormwater system generates a pollutant discharge that impacts another CO-PERMITEE’S system and the impacted CO- PERMITTEE agree to cooperate by providing the staff and equipment necessary to identify the source of pollutant discharges emanating from the separate storm sewer system of one CO-PERMITTEE to the separate storm sewer system of another CO-PERMITTEE. 5. Notification When pollutant discharges to a shared separate storm sewer system are discovered, the CO-PERMITTEES, or COUNTY, or any of the foregoing, as applicable, which are the source of the discharge(s) agree to report said discharges to the other affected parties sharing the particular MS4. The COUNTY shall assist, as needed, in any investigation and identification of a source of the discharge. If the COUNTY discovers a discharge in the separate storm sewer system of a CO-PERMITTEE or the COUNTY, the COUNTY will investigate the source of the discharge and report its findings to the affected NPDES CO-PERMITTEES. When an investigation specifically identifies a NPDES CO- PERMITTEE as the source of a pollutant discharge, then that CO-PERMITTEE shall be responsible 6 for ceasing the discharge and remediating the effects of the discharge by restoring the affected MS4 in accordance with applicable standards. 6. Dispute Resolution When the parties sharing a MS4 cannot agree on the source of a discharge to their shared MS4, the State of Florida Department of Environmental Protection, Bureau of Watershed Management, shall be the final arbiter in determining jurisdiction and responsibility for cessation of discharge, remediation, and final resolution. 7.
