NOE - Notice of Exemption
Document Description
This Program works with local landowners and businesses to implement Best management Practices (BMPs) related to stormwater runoff. The BMPs focus on improving water quality and increasing water conservation by reducing peak flows, decreasing erosion and reducing sediment loads, limiting household and landscape pollutants, increasing infiltration, and capturing and storing rain water. These projects will result in a decrease in sediments and other stromwater transported pollutants in waterways and increased water conservation. The BMPs to be implemented include soil protective ground covers (plants, mulch, rock), rainwater collection systems, pipe outlet protection (dissipaters), rain gardens, swales, pervious hardscapes paver stones, turf block, previous pavements, erosion control blankets, water bars, cross drains, infiltration trenches, and other drainage features.
