Stormwater Management

The Stormwater Management Ordinance for the City of Manitowoc is intended to control the quality and the quantity of stormwater that is leaving newly developed and redeveloped sites. As the City continues to develop it is important for us to plan for future quantities of stormwater. With this ordinance the City can plan for future increases in stormwater runoff. With increases in stormwater, the City also needs to be prepared for possible increases in contaminants that are associated with urban stormwater runoff. The stormwater management ordinance is one way to help ensure clean water for the future as well as promoting environmentally sensitive decisions.


Permit Forms


The following documents are Maintenance Agreement forms.  One is for a Stormwater Wet Pond, which requires a higher insurance requirement; and the other one is for Dry Ponds or Infiltration type Treatment facilities.  Please fill out and submit the Maintenance Agreement required with the Site Plan and Stormwater Management Plan for review.  Once approved and a signed/notarized agreement is submitted to the Engineering Department, an Erosion Control and Building Permit may be issued.
