Draft Storm Water Master Plan Released for Month-Long Review and Comment Period

Nearly two years in the making, Decatur’s emerging Storm Water Master Plan is now ready for prime time. For the next month, we’ll be collecting final input on the present draft as we move our way towards formal adoption later this year.

Hundreds of residents and others helped shape this draft and together we’ve identified 101 areas of concern with appropriate ways to address them. We now have 73 proposed storm water projects to decrease flooding, protect water quality, provide flexibility in implementation, and increase the capacity and stability of stormwater management in the city.

Whether you’ve been engaged in the process since the beginning or are just now plugging in, you now have plenty of opportunity to review, understand, and comment on the proposed draft. Here’s how:
