This component is for projects that do not have a significant impact on stormwater run-off.   Savable are usually considered activities that are temporary and have very little or no impervious area associated with them. This component may or may not include a tree removal element. The following are the most common situations which require a Short Form B Low Stormwater Permit;

  • Demolition of a commercial structure. When demolition occurs in advance of a permit of a new structure.
  • Installation of buried service lines for water, sewer, gas, power, and communication services within the road right-of-way not covered by a general permit.
  • The removal of impervious area and replacing it with previous area.  Storm drain system or channel improvements.
  • Silviculture practice or operations which do not qualify for Notice of Intent or Short Form A Non-residential Permit.
  • Minor roadway shoulder, ditch and stormwater facility activities necessary to meet current code requirements not covered by a general permit.
  • Underground Tank Removal not covered by a Short Form A Non-residential Permit.

General Site Design

  1. Off-site run off entering property adequately dealt with.
  2. Grade changes do not alter the natural flow of off-site uphill generated runoff, unless controlled.
  3. Inlets on slopes use deflectors to prevent run off bypassing.
  4. Runoff from driveways diverted into drainage system in order to prevent direct discharge into a street.
  5. Adequate end treatment on all pipe ends
  6. Energy dissipator structure at outlet of pipes under a large head and at the end of paved flumes.
  7. County or DOT approval for construction in or connection to right-of-way or drainage system.


  1. A general location map;
  2. A statement expressing the intent and scope of the proposed project;
  3. A site plan showing a grading plan, which includes pertinent contours of the areas adjacent to the site; sediment and erosion control plans; existing and proposed wells; natural or constructed stormwater management features; and minimum finished floor elevations;
  4. Information evidencing compliance with all applicable floodplain management and flood hazard ordinances;
  5. The name, local address and telephone number of an individual who shall be designated as the stormwater management control officer;
  6. Evidence based on standard engineering practice demonstrating that no significant change in surface water run off characteristics from the site will result from the proposed development activity, (if applicable);
  7. Permit number and name if part of master planned subdivision;
  8. Method of stormwater conveyance;
  9. Evidence of capacity of the facility, demonstrating that there is capacity available;
  10. If there are to be stormwater management facilities located on-site, an operations and maintenance plan meeting the requirements of subsection 10-4.209(g) is required.
