The City of Wilmington is hosting a public input meeting on Thursday, January 17, 2008, from 6-8 p.m. regarding revisions to the current Stormwater Ordinance. The meeting will be held in City Council Chambers, which is located in City Hall at 102 N. Third Street.
The City holds a federal NPDES Phase II Stormwater Permit which specifies that the City must update their current stormwater management ordinance. This ordinance regulates activities that affect the stormwater drainage system and provides controls that protect public health, safety, and the natural water resources of the area.
An overview of NPDES, the City’s stormwater management program, and the required elements of the new ordinance will be presented. The public will be encouraged to provide input on several topics ranging from post-development controls, illicit discharge, yard waste, pet waste and enforcement.
