Stormwater Management Plan Completeness Checklist
Land disturbing activities that are not exempt from the Fairfax County Stormwater Management Ordinance (SWMO) must submit a complete stormwater management plan for review and approval. A Stormwater Management Plan Completeness Checklist is available to determine whether the plan is complete and can be accepted for review. As the VSMP administrator, Fairfax County requires this checklist to be signed and sealed by the licensed professional preparing the plan and submitted along with the plan. Per SWMO §124-2-9.A.1, if the plan is determined to be incomplete, the applicant will be notified in writing of the reasons the plan is deemed incomplete. If a determination of completeness is not made within 15 calendar days, the plan shall be deemed complete as of the date of submission. Where available to the applicant, electronic communication may be considered communication in writing.
The stormwater management plan must comply with all County Code and PFM requirements. Compliance with the checklist items and obtaining a determination of completeness does not necessarily mean that the plan content is correct or that the plan will be approved.
The Stormwater Management Plan Completeness Checklist is available for download at: http://www.fairfaxcounty.gov/dpwes/forms/
