Post-Construction Runoff Control


Post-construction storm water management is required to address discharges of post construction storm water runoff from new development and redevelopment areas that disturb 1 or more acres of land. The proper installation and maintenance of post construction storm water quality measures are required.  Each new development must prepare an Operation & Maintenance Manual for the long-term management of the storm water conveyance system and structures that are installed.

Post-construction storm water quality measures approved as part of the Storm Water Pollution Prevention Plan / Construction Plan are to achieve elimination of 80% or more of the average annual post-development total suspended solids load (Town Code Section 24-103 (PDF)).
