Lake County Storm Water Master Plan

Lake County, Ohio

DLZ was retained by Lake County to prepare a storm water master plan for the development of Storm Water Master Plan goals for localized, watershed, and basin-wide problems. The prioritization of watersheds was based on the length of legal drains in watersheds, population, municipalities affected, council districts affected, drainage problems previously identified, as well as cost participation and cooperation.

DLZ also assisted in the revision of the existing Storm Water Ordinance. This included the overall technical review of the existing ordinance and the addition of references to watershed plans being developed so that specific criteria for development in each individual watershed may be established.
