Stormwater Requirements for Projects over 300sf


The Village Board adopted ordinances amending the County’s stormwater Post Construction Best Management Practices (PCBMP) requirements to reduce the current threshold for requiring PCBMP storage for new impervious area from 2,500 square feet to 300 square feet. This reduced threshold would allow property owners to make minor additions (i.e. patios, driveway expansions, accessory structures, covered front porches, etc.) without requiring the expense of engineering services and stormwater storage.

This standard became effective May 1, 2015. Example of how a project can meet these standards is provided below (see Available PCBMP Measures). Please contact the Community Development Department for more information.
