The City of Burlington is a federally designated NPDES Phase II community and is currently managing a Stormwater Management Program. The City received its Individual Stormwater Permit July 1, 2005 from the NCDENR-DWQ. It can be viewed on line at http://h2o.enr.state.nc.us/su/phase2_draft_individual_permits.htm

The stormwater program operates as a division of the Water Resources Department. Water Resources continues to coordinate management activities of multiple departments using both City resources and contract services. Existing City departments most involved include Engineering, Planning and Inspections, Water & Sewer, and Public Works. The Street Division maintains responsibility for drainage and infrastructure located within the City’s transportation right-of-ways.

The Morgantown Stream Cleanup was held on Saturday, October 27, 2012. Volunteers from the Morgantown community along with Lambda Chi Alpha of Elon University worked together to remove 5,520 lbs of debris and trash from a tributary to the Haw River. 

This site is under continuous development and interested persons should monitor occasionally for updates. To find out more about stormwater, please visit the Public Education Section. Persons needing additional information may contact Michael Layne in the Water Resources Department at (336) 222-5140.
