Complying with Storm Water Regulations
 
There are local, state, and federal laws and requirements regarding storm water.

Water Quality regulations and the Surface Water Improvement & Management (SWIM) Ordinances are designed to reduce pollution in our streams, rivers, ponds and lakes.

Additional steps to reduce pollution are required by Water Supply Watershed Ordinances.

When land is cleared, graded or otherwise changed, the developer or property owner must follow ordinances to reduce Soil Erosion and Sedimentation.

Post-Construction Controls Ordinances help protect water quality while also reducing the amount of storm water runoff from developed sites.

Water Quality buffer requirements are included in three local ordinances: Post Construction Controls, SWIM, and Water Supply Watersheds.

Floodplain Regulations restrict development, renovations or repairs to buildings, and land grading in mapped floodplains.
