Drawing of Stormwater Concept

The goal of stormwater management is to control runoff from developed properties to minimize stream erosion and the discharge of pollutants into the environment. A stormwater management (SWM) concept typically includes a drawing and narrative which describes the manner in which stormwater runoff from a proposed development will be controlled. An approved stormwater concept is not an approval for construction. If a project requires stormwater management, approval of a concept must be obtained before a Sediment Control permit application may be submitted. Please see Montgomery County Code Chapter 19 for more information.
