Chattanooga Runoff Reduction Standards

Client: the City of Chattanooga
Location: Chattanooga, TN

Because the City of Chattanooga has a high number of impaired streams, the City's new MS4 permit imposed a requirement for "green infrastructure" and 1-inch volume capture for all new and re-development. The City is determined to meet that challenge and establish itself as the leader in sustainable water quality management. Meliora is currently working for the City to develop a comprehensive stormwater management program and manual that will allow developers and their engineers to meet the new stormwater management ordinance and implement Green Infrastructure and Low Impact Development. This work includes: a New Model Storm Water Ordinance, amended city policies and updated codes to support the success of the new Stormwater Ordinance.
