As residents of Warren County, we are very fortunate to be a part of a thriving, progressive and expanding community.  Evidence of this continued development can be seen throughout the county at various construction projects.  The Warren County Department of Building and Electrical Services reported a near record year in regards to permit applications in 2016.  Approximately 950 building permits were applied for during calendar year 2016.  Of those 950 permit applications, 440 were for Single Family Residence structures.  This growth generates many benefits for our citizens.  However, it may also create challenges that must be addressed to ensure successful progress.  Residential construction in areas of high density development is one of the trends becoming more common in Warren County that may require additional attention to stormwater standards.  The following highlights a few key points that contractors, realtors and homeowners can use to improve compliance performance with stormwater regulations

The Warren County Division of Stormwater Management is constantly striving to meet the requirements of our Municipal Separate Storm Sewer System (MS4) Permit issued to the county by the KY Division of Water and the federal Environmental Protection Agency.  Those requirements include tasks such as creating environmental education programs to increase community awareness, reviewing site plans for appropriate design standards and conducting onsite inspections to ensure permit compliance.  These MS4 Permit conditions further require that the inspection process include “escalating enforcement remedies to respond to issues of non-compliance” per KYG20 Part II.B.4.b.iii.  This is certainly not the preferred method for our staff to use as an enforcement tool, but it is required and must be utilized when necessary.  Also, as our stormwater program further develops we want to ensure that clear communication and cooperation between our staff and the regulated community remains a priority.  The summary below outlines standard enforcement documents you may see issued from our department as well as inspection procedures that accompany those documents:
