In September 2008, the City of Alexandria initiated a Comprehensive Stormwater Management Plan (SWMP). The Plan was adopted by the City Council on August 10th, 2009 and provides the city, contractors, residents and businesses concise guidelines, education, capital improvements and programs to address the current and future challenges of protecting the city’s water and natural resources through stormwater management. The Plan will be different from a traditional stormwater management approach, which stressed detention and conveyance facilities, to comprehensive watershed management. This method adds innovative techniques that treat stormwater as a resource instead of a waste product.
A cd copy of the plan is available at City Hall.
