Credits and Fee Adjustments Appeals

The City of Wilmington’s integrated stormwater management program addresses the stormwater needs of the city while protecting its water resources. The major goal of this program is to reduce the amount of pollutants discharged into the surface waters including rivers and creeks. These pollutant discharges occur as a consequence of stormwater run-off, combined sewer overflows and wastewater treatment plant discharges.

The City is engaged in several management activities to mitigate the impact of these pollutant loads on rivers, including pre- and post-construction stormwater management, watershed planning and protection, waste water treatment plant improvements, reduction of volume and frequency of combined sewer overflows, and surface water quality enhancement efforts through the promotion of stormwater quality and quantity management utilizing best management practices.
