Private Stormwater Management Facilities
Private Stormwater Management Facilities (PSWMF) are privately owned post-construction stormwater best management practices (BMPs). These are designed and engineered to store and/or treat stormwater by mimicking pre-development runoff rates and reducing the potential for common pollutants to enter our waterways. BMPs are required to be built or installed during construction when certain parameters are met during the development design process.
As of April 12, 2020, CCG will require development to implement Green Infrastructure and Low Impact Development BMPs to reduce runoff. By reducing runoff, the water can be better used to mimic natural processes and increase green space. Processes such as infiltration and evapotranspiration can help protect water quality and reduce runoff to assist with flood protection.
