Topic: Stormwater Management in North Carolina: Lots of Changes
DEQ is comprehensively updating North Carolina's Stormwater Management Program and, as a result, designers will have more flexibility than before when designing creative and cost-effective stormwater management implementations. The state stormwater rules will be reorganized for ease of understanding and the Stormwater Design Manual will be completely revised too. In addition, the website has been updated. Ms.Lucas discussed these changes, how they may affect you, and how you can stay informed throughout the year.
