Beginning on November 29th, 2022, the City of Statesville will begin the 2nd phase of mapping existing stormwater outfalls within the City’s jurisdiction.  This is a requirement of the National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) Municipal Separate Storm System (MS4) Program and is mandated under the Federal Clean Water Act.  This is year two of the project that will take place over a 3-month period when the leaf cover has thinned.  City of Statesville staff will be accessing properties in order to map the existing stormwater outfalls within the City's jurisdiction. This phase of the project will begin on November 29th, 2022 and run through the beginning of March, 2023.  There will be a 2-person team on these stream walks.  Here is an interactive link where citizens can put in their address and see if City staff will be accessing their properties as they map the outfalls: If property owners have any questions or concerns, please call the Stormwater Hotline at 1-866-41-STORM.

The City has finished this winters portion of the Stormwater Outfall Mapping Project.  We are a little over 50 percent complete for the entire project and 260 outfalls were collected as part of the stream walks. Beginning late November 2022 we will proceed with the remaining 31 miles of streams to walk. Mapping the outfalls of the City Municipal Storm Drainage System is a requirement of the MS4 Permit the City   received from the NC Department of Environmental Quality in 2016.
