Ascension: Stormwater Ordinance passed by Parish Council

By November 8, 2021November 10th, 2021Advocacy

On November 4, 2021, the Ascension Parish Council adopted a stormwater ordinance. The parish is federally and state mandated to develop and implement ordinances and other regulatory mechanisms for managing stormwater. The requirements can be found in our MS4 permit.  This ordinance is based on federal and state standards and is comparable to what other MS4’s have implemented around the state.

HBA is working with Dean Wallace, Stormwater Program Manager, to ensure those building and developing in the parish have BMPs for stormwater management approved by administration. To see the full ordinance included in the meeting please click here.
