Public Notice for Stormwater Management

Answers to Common Questions

Why am I getting this notice?

The referenced construction project is proposed in the street or alley next to your property. The City of Baltimore is required by law to notify you.

What is a qualitative control waiver?​

By law, land-disturbing construction projects  require improvements to the quality of stormwater runoff.  However, some projects (like utility projects) may be granted a waiver because the disturbance is unavoidable and the ground surface will be returned to existing conditions. 

Is that legal?

Yes, under Article 7, Division II, §23-2 of the City Code.

Does this have anything to do with the Maryland Stormwater Fee?

No. The fee that property owners have to pay is different from the stormwater management rules that developers have to follow.

How will it affect me?

The waiver application should not affect you or your property. 

Will it cost me anything?

No. All fees associated with this waiver will be paid by the applicant listed on front page of this notice.

Do I have to do anything?

No action is required, but you can send comments or inquiries to the contacts listed on the front of this notice.

How do I find out additional information about the project itself?
