Stormwater Controls for Businesses and Development

Several existing Newark businesses are inspected on a regular basis to ensure conformance to water protection regulations.  In addition, new development and certain redevelopment projects are subject to regulations that direct how certain activities must occur in order to prevent pollution.  In some cases, a stormwater pollution prevention plan must be reviewed and approved by Engineering staff to ensure compliance with water protection regulations. The City provides handouts to guide contractors through their responsibilities:

Storm Drain Pollution Prevention
Construction and Demolition Debris Recycling
Green Building Ordinance

These handouts and others are also available in the Public Works Department.  Please visit the department’s home page for location and hours of operation.
