Storm Drainage (Runoff)
Drainage is a critical requirement for every subdivision. Inadequate
drainage can lead to flooding , resulting in erosion, loss of stability
or in property damage. In addition, subdivisions that are not properly
drained can result in damage to highways both in and downstream from
the subdivision, resulting in a public safety hazard.
Storm water must be considered both in the subdivision and outside
of it. The applicant may be required to have a drainage study or design
prepared by a Professional Engineer or hydrologist. Drainage should
be carried to a natural outfall or approved storm drain capable of carrying
the additional flow.
