The Science and Environment Division is a recently created city entity. The mission of the Division is to manage the city's federal storm water national pollutant discharge elimination system (NPDES) permit and to achieve permit requirements and water quality improvements. In addition, the Division has been established to provide credible scientific advice on issues relevant to Pocatello's quality of life and surrounding environment.


The Division contributes to the City Council's goals and objectives in three ways, first by strengthening community and government partnerships; second by working to sustain public safety; and third through its efforts to improve water quality/quantity and air quality throughout the City of Pocatello and local region.
