Why do we have the Archdale Citizens’ Excel (ACE) Integrated Stormwater Management Program? It is simple, in 1969 the Cuyahoga River was on fire and a series of laws were passed by the Congress of the United States which require the City of Archdale and its’ citizens to be the environmental stewards. ACE is a by-product of the first of those laws starting with the Clean Water Act of 1972. For more information, feel free to contact the Stormwater Program Manager to see how you can help.

National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System

Under the provisions of the National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) NCS000434 Municipal Separate Storm Sewer System (MS4) effective May 15, 2017, the General Permit Construction Activities NCG010000, effective April 1, 2019, General Statute 89, and various City of Archdale Ordinances the ACE Integrated Stormwater Management Program provides the mechanism for compliance within the boundaries of the 518 subbasins within the Reese (WS-III) and Randleman (WS-IV) in which the major ridge line is Archdale Road.

If those requirements can be met, it is considered to be more stringent than other less stringent waterways. However, if site restraints do not allow then the governing waterway requirements are used. 

To monitor efforts of the waterways leaving the jurisdiction, the City of Archdale Stormwater Health Assessment Panel quantifies different criteria established by the Environmental Protection Agency criteria. Values depict a Maximum Extent Practable (MEP) result (PDF).
