Stormwater Management

The Stormwater Management Office is located within the Office of the Fayette Soil and Water Conservation District.

The Fayette County Rules and Regulations for Stormwater Management and Sediment Control were passed in November of 2020. These Regulations were established and promulgated to effectively manage stormwater and minimize erosion due to development, in order to promote and maintain the health, safety, and welfare of the citizens of Fayette County.

An Earth Disturbing Permit shall be required for all earth disturbing operations or developments of 1 acre or more. Individual residential lots of an approved subdivision shall not be considered separately but will be reviewed in the context of the overall subdivision plan submitted by the developer to the Planning Commission. Where an application and compliance are required by these Regulations, an Earth Disturbing Permit must be obtained prior to a Building Permit being issued.

An Earth Disturbing Permit Application may be downloaded from this site or obtained from the Fayette Soil and Water Conservation District or the Fayette County Engineers Office.
