Construction Runoff

Stormwater runoff from construction sites can carry sediment (small particles of soil and sand)  which is one of the leading causes of impairment of streams and rivers in the nation.

As a result the City of Bardstown requires a Land Disturbance permit for all reasonable size construction in the City. The Engineering department reviews plans for larger sites (those being half an acre or larger) and requires a Stormwater Pollution Prevention Plan (SWPPP) be submitted before construction is permitted.
