MONTVILLE TOWNSHIP STORMWATER MANAGEMENT REQUIREMENTS In accordance with Chapter 230-112 through 230-114 of the Township Code, all improvements resulting in an increased impervious area of 150 square feet or greater must provide a Stormwater Management System to control the increase in stormwater runoff created by the additional impervious area. The applicant/owner’s design professional must provide a stormwater management design and certification confirming that the improvements will result in a zero increase in stormwater runoff for all permit applications to which this code applies. The applicant/owner is required to notify the Engineering Department prior to backfilling the underground stormwater system for an inspection by the Public Works Inspector. When the improvements are completed and prior to final engineering approvals, the applicant/owner’s design professional must confirm in writing that the stormwater management system was properly installed in accordance with the approved design. The Township’s Public Works Inspector’s inspection is not considered confirmation that the system was properly installed. Therefore, the applicant/owner must coordinate any necessary inspections of the system’s installation by their design professional that may be necessary for the final certification of satisfactory completion. Please contact Nick Marucci, PE-PLS, Township Engineer, at the Engineering Department, [email protected]
