Stormwater Management Permit

A consultation meeting is highly recommended prior to the submittal of any Stormwater Management Plans. There is no charge for any consultation meeting. A consultation meeting is a valuable tool for the developer and design engineer as it provides an opportunity to discuss the development, the stormwater infrastructure, any potential problems and issues, and the application process prior to any actual submittals.

Step-by-Step Application Process

  1. Submit compete Stormwater Management Application Packet----A complete packet includes every item in the submittal checklist.
  2. After approval, submit a written list of work and cost estimates for each BMP. This list must be signed and sealed by a qualified registered North Carolina professional engineer.
  3. Submit a performance installation security in the amount of the approved cost estimate plus 25%.
  4. Receive approved Stormwater Management Permit.
  5. Begin Construction - staff will perform spot inspections during construction
