The Town of Hillsborough’s 2020 annual reports on its stormwater management program are available now on the town’s website.
The Falls Lake Nutrient Sensitive Water report is required by the N.C. Department of Environmental Quality’s Falls Lake Stormwater Rule for New Development. It is submitted to the department and summarizes new development activities in the previous fiscal year.
The National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System Phase II report is required under the federal Clean Water Act and state regulations. It summarizes all activities of the town’s stormwater management program for the previous fiscal year. These include public education and outreach; public involvement and participation; illicit discharge detection and elimination; construction site stormwater runoff control; post-construction stormwater management for new development and redevelopment; and pollution prevention and good housekeeping for municipal operations.
The reports are available on the stormwater and environmental regulation page of the town website.
