Pinellas to adopt new stormwater manual

Posted By: Kevin Schwartz Advocacy News ,

Pinellas County is set to adopt a new stormwater manual this week that was two years in the making and will guide modern development on design standards, drainage, retention and treatment.

The new manual will replace chapter 154 of the current Land Development Code.

The manual will provide a centralized location for all requirements, as well as methods to meet the requirements. The manual will also provide more tools and flexibility, protect and restore our surface waters, incentivize redevelopment and promote urban regeneration, ensure compatibility with other code sections, and introduce resiliency measures to meet current and future conditions.

Download the manual here. Comments on the standards and requirements can be sent to commissioners here.
