The Stormwater By-law

Regulations and Application

Stormwater By-law Goal
The goal of the By-law is to ensure that development, redevelopment, and land disturbance activities do not increase stormwater run-off. Regulating stormwater protects abutting wetlands, properties, and homeowners from the likelihood of experiencing increased flooding problems and erosion from nearby construction sites.

  • Conservation

  • Public Works
  • Town Planner
