Storm water Management and permitting Requirements

Are you developing a site that has potential to discharge storm water to the storm drain system and/or directly to a water body and need to know your permitting requirements? Click on the map of the urbanized area of Fairbanks and input the site address.

The Fairbanks North Star Borough (FNSB), City of Fairbanks, City of North Pole, and State of Alaska Department of Environmental Conservation (ADEC) have separate areas of jurisdiction and project review authority for storm water management in the Fairbanks area. The accompanying handout is intended to help developers identify the appropriate regulatory agency and submittal requirements for their projects. It contains a chart that outlines project review authority for each agency along with a submittal matrix and agency contact information.
