  • Stormwater Facility Regulations 
    To improve the effects of stormwater runoff, and thereby improve the quality of the Chesapeake Bay, the Maryland legislature passed the Storm Water Management (SWM) Act of 2007. Baltimore County has revised its Code to incorporate these state-mandated changes.
  • SWM Checklists and Forms
    Developers need to complete checklists and forms when preparing their plans for review by Stormwater Engineering.
