Depending on the site, certain items may be required to be submitted with the engineering plans for review. A Plan Submittal Form should be filled out and included with any submittal package as a way to ensure all necessary documents are included. Incomplete plans and/or submittal packages will not be reviewed until all required documents and payment have been received by the City.
Typical items required with submittals are as follows:
Stormwater Pollution Prevention Plan (SWPPP) & Stormwater Management Plan (SWMP): A SWPPP and SWMP are required for any site that disturbs 0.5 acres or more and/or is part of a greater common development. The SWPPP & SWMP should be submitted for review prior to applying for a land disturbance permit. For help on developing a SWPPP, see examples provided by the EPA on their website.
SWPPP Checklist: The SWPPP checklist is required for any site that has a SWMP & SWPPP and should be submitted with all plan review documents prior to obtaining a land disturbance permit. It is intended to help the preparer include all necessary items in the SWPPP. This checklist should be signed by the SWPPP preparer before being submitted to the City. The SWPPP Checklist can be found here.
Site Plan Review Checklist: This checklist is required for any site requiring a SWMP & SWPPP. It is intended to help designers as well as expedite the review process and should be signed by both the Engineer and owner of the site. The checklist should be submitted (with signatures) along with design plans and other required documents for review. The Site Plan Review Checklist can be found here.
Detention Analysis Checklist: This checklist is required for any site that is proposing detention for stormwater control. It is intended to help engineers during design while also facilitating the City's review process. The checklist should be signed by both the Engineer and owner of the site and then submitted along with the design plans and other required documents for review. The Detention Analysis Checklist can be found here.
Subdivision Review Checklist: This checklist is only required for subdivision development projects and should be used in place of the Site Plan Checklist. It should be signed by both the owner and engineer prior to being submitted with design plans and other required documents. The Subdivision review checklist can be found here.
Drainage Easement: A drainage easement is required for any site that has detention areas, drainage ways, water quality and quantity facilities, or other stormwater management facilities. The easements for these stormwater facilities and/or access easements to these facilities should be dedicated to the City. The easements are required so that stormwater facilities will function as designed throughout the course of time they are used. Final drainage easements (with signatures) may be submitted after City review and approval, but shall be submitted prior to obtaining a Land Disturbance Permit.
Stormwater Maintenance Agreement: For sites with stormwater management improvements and post-construction best management practices (BMPs), a stormwater maintenance agreement is required. The maintenance agreement is to ensure perpetual maintenance of the stormwater facilities following construction so they will function as designed. The City will take care of recording the maintenance agreement in the Nelson County Clerk's Office for the submitter for a fee as defined by the Nelson County Clerk's Office Fee Schedule. A copy of an appropriate maintenance agreement can be found here.
Engineer's Estimate: The performance bond for these larger sites should be based on an Engineer's itemized estimate of stormwater facilities, ROW improvements, erosion control measures and their maintenance, sidewalks, entrances, etc. The estimate should be submitted for approval prior to obtaining a Land Disturbance Permit. Bond amounts for entrances shall be based on the minimum bond amount as defined in the City's Fee Schedule for each entrance. Bond amounts for sidewalks shall be based on $15/ft of sidewalk.
Water Usage & Meter Size: For commercial & industrial sites with proposed connections to City water & sewer facilities an Engineer's certified estimate of monthly water usage and water meter size should be submitted for review before a connection request and system development charge (SDC) can be processed. Following approval of the estimate and water meter size, a water & sewer connection request can be made by filling out the City's Water & Sewer Connection & System Development Charge Form found here.
