Malmstrom Air Force Base is permitted by the Montana Department of Environmental Quality to discharge storm water under the Municipal Separate Storm Sewer System general permit. In conjunction with that permit, Malmstrom has set forth goals and objectives in the Storm Water Management Plan. Both documents can be found under the 'Documents' section on this page.
• What can I do to reduce pollution? All the water that goes into the street and into the drain eventually ends up in the Missouri River. The important thing to know is that there are many avenues humans can affect the storm water quality we discharge. For more information, please refer to the Resident's Guide to Storm Water in the 'Documents' section of this page.
• What if I see a spill or pollution? If you see or suspect pollution entering a base storm drain, please contact the Civil Engineer Environmental at (406) 731-6155 or for immediate assistance, contact the Fire Department at (406) 731-3199.
• What requirements must I follow for construction projects? For construction projects that disturb more than one acre of land, a construction storm water permit is required from DEQ. If the project is greater than 5,000 square feet, the project must restore or maintain predevelopment hydrology, per the Energy Independence and Security Act section 438. For more information, please contact CE Environmental at (406) 731-6155.
