Managing your association’s storm water

If your association is required to manage a storm water system then you already know that this can be a complicated issue to deal with. In 1991, regulations were established to protect North Carolina’s water source and any new condo or community developments are required to have storm water permits. Even if your community was built long before 1991, you’re still required to comply with state regulations as well as any regulation on the municipal level.
