Storm Water Control
The provisions on Stormwater Drainage Control are found at Chapter 8.10 of the Municipal Code. The storage of and controlled release of stormwater runoff is required by Ordinance 02-6, as amended. The release rate of storm water from developed lands cannot exceed the release rate from the land area in its present land use. These matters are referred to Steve Grundhoefer, the Town’s engineer. There are limited exceptions to the stormwater control policy. Developments which are exempt by size are subject to further regulation if, within a five year period, the cumulative increase of the impervious or semi-impervious surfaces is, in the aggregate, 10,000 square feet or greater (residential or commercial development) or 5,000 square feet or greater (industrial development). Permit review fees are due at the time of submission.
Storm Water Fee:
Up to 1 acre: $150
1 - 10 acres: $200
10+ acres: $250
