Requirements for Managing Stormwater

Development and redevelopment within the Town’s municipal boundaries and its Extraterritorial Jurisdiction (ETJ) are required to manage stormwater in accordance with Section 5.4 of the Chapel Hill Land Use Management Ordinance (LUMO).

In order to protect and safeguard the environment, property, and safety of residents within the Town’s jurisdiction, the LUMO requires development and redevelopment activities to manage and control stormwater runoff rate, volume, pollutants, and erosion/sedimentation.

Low Impact Design (LID) measures are highly encouraged to meet the stormwater management performance criteria in the LUMO. The goal is to maintain a site’s predevelopment (or improve redevelopment) hydrologic conditions using ecologically-based management techniques that infiltrate, filter, store, and evapotranspirate stormwater on-site.
