Lake County Stormwater Management
The Lake County Stormwater Management Commission (SMC) was established in 1991 through state legislation to coordinate stormwater management activities from a countywide and inter-jurisdictional perspective.

The main focus of the commission is to manage Lake County's floodplains and watersheds by administering County-wide floodplain and stormwater management standards; in addition to flood damage reduction through flood hazard mitigation projects, and implementing Best Management Practices (BMP's), watershed management plans and effective floodplain and stormwater management regulations. The commission also focuses on Natural Resource protection and restoration by utilizing a mix of funding sources and partnerships to restore and enhance the natural drainage system.
