Harrisonburg's Stormwater Improvement Plan (SWIP) is intended to be a long-range visionary plan that incorporates the City's stormwater needs to achieve regulatory compliance. The SWIP will outline how stormwater utility fee funds will be invested in projects to filter, control, and treat polluted runoff before it reaches local waterways and the Chesapeake Bay.
