What You'll Need Smaller Sites Timeframe Property Managers Forms
Stormwater devices are typically added to new development during construction to manage the stormwater runoff coming from the property.
After construction - you are required to get the devices inspected each year.
What You'll Need
Annual inspections are completed by a North Carolina professional engineer, landscape architect, or land surveyor. They make sure that the device is maintained and functioning properly.
The inspection should include:
- Identifying and coordinating repairs;
- Filling out Form-501 and including it in the report (signed and sealed);
- Showing that your device(s) is functioning; and,
- Supporting photos/documents.
Make sure you complete this checklist before submitting your report.
Do you need a licensed professional to help with maintenance and the inspections? View these recommendations from the Stormwater Inspection & Maintenance Program.
If your property was built under the text change for smaller site development - complete Form-502 for your inspection. A North Carolina professional engineer, landscape architect, or land surveyor does not need to complete the form.
Once an as-built certification is accepted for the device - you must submit an annual inspection report to the City of Raleigh every year going forward. The report is due by the anniversary date of the as-built acceptance.
Join the City for an information session about stormwater device requirements. You'll also learn about common maintenance needs for a device on your property. More details are available by email.
