The Importance of Stormwater
During construction, soil is highly vulnerable to erosion by wind and water. Eroded soil endangers our rivers, creeks, streams and underground water resources by reducing water quality and damaging aquatic habitats. Clearing and grading during the construction process reduces the amount of native vegetation necessary for wildlife habitats.
Erosion from construction job sites also clogs our sewers, ditches, sinkholes, and drywells necessitating costly repairs. Not only that, streets and road with sediment deposits from construction job sites are often slick and hazardous to the public.
The City of Campbellsville Stormwater department was created to provide a safeguard to persons, protect property, and prevent damage to the environment. The Stormwater department promotes public welfare by regulating the design, construction, use, and maintenance of developments and other activities that disturb soil in order to prevent erosion from construction job sites or into our water resources and drainage structures. Remember if it rains it drains!
