Collecting Rainwater: Not Just for Plants

COLLECTING RAINWATER: NOT JUST FOR PLANTS The Public Works Department may modify proposed regulations requiring detention ponds or barrels on new construction and residential additions — before they go into effect in October: “City officials acknowledge the proposal is too broad and does not do enough to differentiate big projects from small projects that have less of a flood impact. They said changes will probably still require detention ponds for big projects – like town homes — that contribute to flooding, but smaller construction projects may be exempt.” [11 News]

  • I was at this forum that the city engineers went over the new changes.

    Nothing is really changing much. The detention requirements will become a little more stringent, but in no way will halt development.
