Annual Reporting Template

Annual Reporting Template, Year 17

Below is this year’s customizable annual reporting template, which can be used to create your Year 16 Annual Facility Inspection Report (i.e., Annual Report). Before using the template to create your Annual Report, please carefully review the provided tips, comments and information provided in the red text preceding each part of the template. These boxes provide useful information and helpful tips for completing your Annual Report. There should be NO yellow shaded text, red text boxes or margin comments in your final document when the annual report is completed and ready for submission to IEPA.

The SMPP template is based on updates completed in 2017, in order to comply with IL EPA's General NPDES Permit No. ILR40 issued on March 1, 2016. The Year 17 Annual Reporting Template includes updates on SMC QLP activities, DRWW and NBWW activities, and various text references of the YR14 new permit references.

Communities that have still not created an SMPP should update their annual report based on the format they previously submitted; SMC has not provided a template for these communities.

As a reminder, your reporting packet (i.e., Annual Facility Inspection Report Form & Annual Report) should be sent to IEPA by no later than June 1, 2020.  The form may be placed on top of your Annual Report, as a cover sheet, to create your reporting packet.  The packet should be submitted directly to IEPA using the following e-mail address:; there is no need to submit a copy to SMC.

Please call 847-377-7700 if you should have any questions about the template or any questions about IL EPA's new permit or municipal stormwater program.
