Public Comment Period for Increased Rainfall in Lake County Open
June 6, 2019 - July 6, 2019
The Stormwater Management Commission (SMC) opened a 30-day public comment period on Thursday, June 6, to collect feedback regarding increased rainfall in Lake County. With Lake County receiving significantly higher rainfall amounts, precipitation is a critical factor on flood damage reduction, economic impact, infrastructure design and regulations, and on stormwater storage requirements for development sites.
As SMC provides guidance and recommendations on how to review development and stormwater infrastructure projects using the updated rainfall as best available data, stakeholders and interested individuals are encouraged to submit their perspectives, ideas, and concerns. The information gathered will be considered to set new standards for the Watershed Development Ordinance, a countywide ordinance that sets forth minimum requirements for the stormwater management aspects of development within Lake County.
