Commercial property owners & HOAs urged to submit Stormwater Control Measures inspection report

Contributed to WSJ by the Town of Wake Forest

The State of North Carolina requires that all Homeowners Associations (HOAs) and commercial property owners maintain their Stormwater Control Measures (SCMs) to ensure the continued functionality of the stormwater system. SCMs are physical, engineered structures, such as bioretention ponds, underground storage and wetlands, constructed to remove pollution from stormwater runoff.

According to Chapter 12.5.6(C) of the Town of Wake Forest Unified Development Ordinance (UDO), commercial property owners and HOAs are responsible for the annual inspection of their permitted SCMs which must be performed by a qualified inspector. A complete listing of inspection requirements is provided in Chapter 2.9.5(A) of the Town’s Manual of Specification, Standards & Design.  

Wake Forest commercial property owners and HOAs are urged to provide a copy of their completed inspection report to the Public Works Department for the period of July 2019 through July 2020. In the event no inspection has occurred, property owners have until December 31, 2020, to submit the required report.

The Town’s “Annual SCM Inspection Form” is available on the Town’s website at https://bit.ly/WFStormwaterControlMeasures. For more information, contact Stormwater Engineer Monica Sarna at 919-435-9442 or msarna@wakeforestnc.gov
