Stormwater Management Ordinance
Fairfax County is preparing a Stormwater Management Ordinance in response to state regulations requiring localities to adopt ordinances and take over reviews and inspections for Virginia Stormwater Management Program (VSMP) general permits relating to stormwater runoff from construction sites effective July 1, 2014.
Many processes, systems, ordinance changes and training of staff and industry, in addition to a written stormwater management ordinance, will need to occur in order for us to be ready for the effective date. A series of meetings with stakeholders is being held to gather information that will be used in developing the new county ordinance and design and construction standards for stormwater control practices.
This page will be updated with meeting dates, draft ordinances and other related information. Members of industry and the general public are encouraged to provide input as the county moves through the process of writing and adopting a county Stormwater Management Ordinance.
UPDATE: The final stakeholders meeting has been postponed.
County staff is currently working on several key items. A new date
for this meeting will be announced later this spring. View complete
