Section 403 Stormwater Management
JUMP TO FULL CODE CHAPTER
Stormwater management systems shall address the increase in runoff that would occur resulting from development on the building site and shall either:
- Manage rainfall onsite and size the management system to retain not less than the volume of a single storm which is equal to the 95th-percentile rainfall event and all smaller storms and maintain the predevelopment natural runoff; or
- Maintain or restore the predevelopment stable, natural runoff hydrology of the site throughout the development or redevelopment process. Postconstruction runoff rate, volume, and duration shall not exceed predevelopment rates. The stormwater management system design shall be based, in part, on a hydrologic analysis of the building site.
The stormwater management system shall not redirect or concentrate off-site discharge that would cause increased erosion or other drainage related damage to adjoining lots or public property.
Coal tar sealants shall not be used in any application exposed to stormwater, wash waters, condensates, snowmelt, icemelt or any source of water that could convey coal tar sealants into soils, surface waters or groundwaters.
