What is Stormwater Management?
Stormwater management is the process of controlling the runoff that comes primarily from impervious surfaces like parking lots, driveways, and roof tops. Stormwater flows directly from streets and gutters into our streams and rivers, often with little or no treatment.
Stormwater can also transport pollutants that collect on these hard surfaces such as motor oil, household cleaners, and other materials which may negatively impact water quality.
Roanoke County Seeks Citizens to Serve
on Storm Water Advisory Committee
Due to recent regulations from the State and Federal government, Roanoke County anticipates significant changes in its stormwater programs and associated costs. To help shape these changes and provide recommendations to the Board of Supervisors, the County is forming a Roanoke County Stormwater Advisory Committee (RCSWAC). The ideal committee will represent a broad spectrum of viewpoints from across the County and the Town of Vinton.
Committee members are expected to commit to reviewing briefing packets prior to meetings, attending approximately seven monthly meetings beginning in July, provide honest opinions, respect the viewpoints of other committee members, work to develop consensus as to the level of stormwater services desired with associated costs, and to recommend possible funding mechanisms.
