At its regular meeting on December 19th,the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Storm Water Advisory Committee (SWAC) approved a package of revisions to the Storm Water Design Manual that provides guidance for the construction of storm water management facilities in the City, County and each of the Towns.
REBIC and our engineer members reviewed the draft revisions earlier this year and support the adoption of the updated manual. Most of the changes addressed inconsistent formatting, outdated methodologies and unclear standards. The new manual takes effect January 1, 2014. You can download it, and see a list of specific revisions, on the County website.
