The purpose of this chapter is to establish minimum storm water management requirements and controls to protect and safeguard the general health, safety, and welfare of the public residing in watersheds within the jurisdiction of the Village. This chapter seeks to meet that purpose through the following objectives:
(a) Minimize increases in storm water runoff from any development in order to reduce flooding, siltation, increases in stream temperature, and streambank erosion and maintain the integrity of stream channels;
(b) Minimize pollution caused by storm water runoff from development that would otherwise degrade local water quality;
(c) Minimize the total annual volume of surface water runoff that flows from any specific site during and following development to not exceed the pre-development hydrologic regime to the maximum extent practicable; and
(d) Reduce storm water runoff rates and volumes, soil erosion and pollution, wherever possible, through storm water management controls and to ensure that these management controls are properly maintained and pose no threat to public safety.
