2012 Stormwater Master Plan
The 2012 Stormwater Master Plan involves an integrated approach to stormwater and watershed management that will result in the development of management solutions and policies that maintain, enhance and restore local watersheds, and meet engineering, environmental, and land use needs.
Goals, policies, and code related to stormwater management
Development of Capital Improvement Program projects
Financial analysis and plan
Addressing state and federal requirements
Public involvement process
Low Impact Development
Low Impact Development (LID) principles and practices are used in the master plan. The primary stormwater management objective for LID is to replicate the pre-development hydrologic regime of watersheds through infiltrating, filtering, storing, evaporating, and detaining runoff close to its source. Villebois includes a number of LID principles and practices. The Public Works Standards will be revised to recognize the use of LID practices for stormwater management, subject to approval by the City Council.
