Core Requirement and Redevelopment Projects

  • Develop, implement, and enforce a program through an ordinance or other regulatory mechanism to address post-construction storm water runoff from:

    • all new and redevelopment projects that disturb ≥1 acre, and

    • projects that disturb <1 acre if they are part of a larger common plan of development or sale that would disturb ≥1 acre.

Applies to Permittee and Non-Permittee Projects

Permittee expectations l.jpg
Permittee Expectations Regulatory Mechanisms

  • Establish a post-construction control program through an ordinance or other regulatory mechanism.

  • May rely on others to assist with completing the necessary reviews and calculations.

Compliance with permit requirements is ultimately the responsibility of the permittee.

  • Maintain post-development site runoff volume and peak flow rate at or below existing levels

  • All storms up to the 2-year, 24-hour event

Stream Stability Required Components

The ability of a stream, over time, to maintain its pattern, dimension and profile such that, the channel neither aggrades or degrades and is able to transport without adverse impact the flow and sediment from it’s watershed.

sediment discharge,

over time, occurs at

the bankfull flow rate

which is between the 1 to 2 year recurrence interval.

At the bankfull flow,

the stream bottom picks

up and moves, then

redistributes its self

in the same pool &

riffle patterns existing

prior to the bankfull

discharge.
