Our Mission

Welcome to the Lake County Stormwater Management Commission's website. SMC's mission is to coordinate the stormwater activities of over 90 local jurisdictions to improve water quality, reduce flood damages, and restore and enhance the natural drainage system. See About the Commission

  Share Your Input and Ideas on Stormwater Management Issues
SMC is kicking off the Lake County Comprehensive Stormwater Management Plan update process in August. We're seeking your input, information, and ideas about the County's current stormwater management issues and needs. Attend a public outreach meeting or stakeholder workshop. If you can't make a meeting, take a survey. See Comp Plan Update for more information.
