About Stormwater Services

The City’s Stormwater program is a requirement established by the federal government’s Clean Water Act (CWA), which is dedicated to implementing broad-based watershed strategies to reduce water pollution.  The federal government requires the City of Asheville, and all similarly-sized U.S. cities, to create and maintain stormwater programs in an effort to restore and maintain the integrity of our nation’s waters by sharply reducing water pollution.

Other primary initiatives:

  • Reduce stormwater infrastructure failures which may cause property damage and loss of life
  • Reduce flooding on streets and private property
  • Reduce environmental degradation due to sedimentation, erosion and illicit discharge
