Persons needing additional information regarding the City’s stormwater management program may contact the program manager, D.J. Señeres, at (336) 434-7344 or by email at dseneres@archdale-nc.gov.

 The City of Archdale is a federally designated National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) Phase II community and operates under the authority of the ACE (Archdale’s Community Effort) Integrated Stormwater Management Program, which became effective on January 2, 2008 by action of the City Council. The City received its Individual Stormwater Permit NCS00434 July 1, 2005 from the North Carolina Department of Environment and Natural Resources – Division of Water Quality. It can be viewed on line at: http://h2o.enr.state.nc.us/su/phase2_draft_individual_permits.htm

NPDES Phase II is a federal and state mandated program under the Clean Water Act to address non-point source pollution or stormwater runoff. The Stormwater Program operates as a division of the Planning Department. To find out more about stormwater runoff and water quality in our region, please visit our public education website: http://www.StormwaterSMART.org

“All real property experiences stormwater run-on and runoff regardless if a drainage concern exists on that specific piece of property or not. Even if your property has never flooded, the stormwater that flows off your property must be managed so that it does not contribute to flooding or pollution in areas downstream. Whether you live in a condominium, a suburban home or in an urban setting, stormwater is an issue.”

Stormwater management has several projects planned or currently in progress. (See pictures below)
