The City of Empire promotes its Stormwater and Illicit Discharge Detection and Elimination (IDDE) Program to residents to ensure that they can easily contact the appropriate department to report an issue relating to stormwater management.  Information about the Municipal Separate Storm Sewer System (MS4) Permit and IDDE program can be found on the City’s website.  Members of the public are encouraged to notify the City of potential stormwater contamination issues by calling 651-470-5056 during business hours, or 651-463-4494 after hours. The City tracks the number and types of complaints received, the number of investigations initiated from both residential and commercial complaints, as well as the number of stormwater phone calls received in general.
