City Stormwater Ordinance

To provide a consistent level of protection throughout the city and comply with the requirements of the MS4 general permit, a program for consistent regulation and enforcement has been developed. The Stormwater Ordinance provides comprehensive regulatory requirements consistent with the Greenville Stormwater Management Plan goals. The Stormwater Ordinance specifies standards for: 
  • Floodplain management
  • Soil erosion and sediment control
  • Stormwater drainage and detention/retention
  • Wetland and stream protection
