What We Do

In 1992, the Town appointed a Stormwater Management Committee to study stormwater management issues in Chapel Hill. In 2004, the Town’s discussions and recommendations led to the creation of a Stormwater Management Utility, funded by property owner fees based on the amount of impervious surface on the property. The utility provides funding to meet Town’s requirements under the National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) – Phase II regulations of the Clean Water Act.
