Reminder – Complete the IFA Stormwater Survey by January 15, 2021!

On December 11, 2020, the Indiana Finance Authority (IFA) notified municipalities of the opportunity to participate in a stormwater survey to assess Indiana stormwater management budgeting, planning best practices, and stormwater infrastructure needs.  This initiative is based on the 2019 Indiana Stormwater Task Force findings and recommendations.  Given the current limited stormwater funding available for municipalities and their respective utilities, we urge you to participate in quantifying the State of Indiana’s needs.

The survey can be accessed here, and a paper copy can be obtained on the IFA website at

If you would like to discuss this or other water legislative initiatives, please contact Brady Dryer via email or by phone at 317-888-1177.


From the IFA:


Dear Utility Manager:

 As directed by the 2019 Indiana Storm Water Task Force, the Indiana Finance Authority (“IFA”) is conducting a survey to better understand storm water management budgeting, planning best practices, and storm water infrastructure needs. We want to hear from all communities in Indiana even if your community isn’t a Municipal Separate Storm Sewer System, aka an “MS4”, or doesn’t have a storm water utility. A final report that summarizes and anonymizes the findings will be prepared and posted to the IFA’s website in 2021.

The survey is best completed by someone familiar with the community’s budgeting and stormwater infrastructure and should take less than 30 minutes to complete using an online questionnaire. Here is the link to the survey: This survey focuses on storm water in populated areas; the survey does not address closely related agricultural, flood risk or large flood management needs. 

Please respond by January 15, 2021. Though your response to this survey is voluntary, the results may be used to influence future state-wide policies, so your participation is vital.

If you have any questions, please email Sarah Hudson at
