Understand Why You Received a Stormwater Notice of Violation

There are many reasons why your property might have received an NOV. Some possibilities include:

  • Improper site preparation: Years ago, when your commercial facility or residential community was first built, the developer may have failed to prepare the site properly for long-term soil stability. The building(s) may also have been erected in a less-than-ideal location on your plot, resulting in erosion, sinkholes, and cracked foundations.
  • Changes to local conditions: New weather patterns could make water management difficult with your existing systems, especially if they were only meant to be temporary solutions. Construction on or around your property can also change water runoff patterns, creating problems that resulted in a violation.
  • Neglect or improper maintenance: The municipal government may have failed to keep up with the drainage and stormwater management needs of the area. As a building owner or community manager, it’s also your responsibility to keep up with routine stormwater inspections and maintenance. Things such as broken clean-outs, downed fences, sediment buildup, and trash accumulation are all problems that could put you in violation of local government, EPA, and HOA requirements.

What to Do if You Receive a Stormwater NOV

If you get a Notice of Violation in the mail, you have no choice but to comply. Failure to correct the issues outlined in your NOV within the allotted time could result in civil penalties (fines) of hundreds or even thousands of dollars per day that the violation occurs.

"Incredible stormwater management service. The owner John consulted on a property I manage and ended up saving us thousands of dollars in environmental fees from the government. Now, our property is compliant with the EPA and we have a great partner to keep us maintained on storm water regulations over time."
