General Information about Stormwater Facility Maintenance

The Stormwater Facility Maintenance Program is responsible for inspecting and ensuring maintenance of all public and private stormwater management facilities within Montgomery County. Maintenance can involve structural repairs and involve some construction, excavation, and digging. It is vital that the structures be maintained in working order so they function as intended, providing protection and stormwater management for parks, schools, and businesses. Stormwater facilities can become clogged by trash, debris, sediment and mud, or other pollutants. The facilities themselves can develop structural cracks and leaks over time. The Stormwater Facility Maintenance Program has an inspection section that routinely inspects all stormwater facilities in the County every three years. The inspection is used to determine a facility's condition and to identify its need for repair or maintenance. Maintenance also involves cleaning structures that are clogged by oil or other toxic materials. Inspection and maintenance of stormwater facilities are essential to keeping them functioning. The DEP Stormwater Facility Maintenance Program will investigate the complaint and contact the property owner if remediation is required for the stormwater facility. For inquiries requiring the response of a DEP investigator, requestors will typically be contacted within 3 days although resolution of the issue may take longer depending on the circumstances of the case.
