Section 12A-86 Purpose.
Prior to the adoption of Ord. 19442 on 03/05/2007, Section 12A-86 read as follows.
The purpose of this article is to establish minimum stormwater management
controls to protect and safeguard the general health, safety and welfare of the public. This article
is intended to meet that purpose through the following objectives:
(1) Minimize increases in stormwater runoff from any development in order
to reduce flooding,
siltation and streambank erosion and stream channel degradation;
(2) Minimize increases in non-point source pollution caused by stormwater
development which would otherwise degrade local water quality;
(3) Minimize the total annual volume of surface water runoff which flows from
site during and following development to not exceed the predevelopment hydrologic regime to
the maximum extent practicable; and
(4) Reduce stormwater runoff rates and volumes, soil erosion and non-point
wherever possible, through stormwater management controls and to ensure that these
management controls are properly maintained and pose no threat to public safety.
