Single Family Home Stormwater Improvements
As of October 27, 2015, the City has issued 84 new Single Family Residential Permits in 2015. These permits require new single family homes to provide onsite stormwater storage that promotes infiltration. A total of 37,020 cubic feet (0.84 acre-feet) of new stormwater storage has been provided this year alone. This averages to approximately 440 cubic feet of stormwater storage per new home.
