County Updating Stormwater Regs

County Updating Stormwater Regs
A common complaint in LV: after a neighbor’s home gets replaced by a spec developer surrounding yards get flooded when it rains.
  Responding to increasing flooding and rampant development, the County plans to change its stormwater management regulations for single-family home construction projects. Developers are, of course, unhappy. The proposed changes are to be published in July and take effect in Sept 2021.
  The county surveyed neighbors, home builders and engineers in 2019 and met with engineers early this year. The County found that soil under new homes is 10 times less permeable than the soil under existing homes.
