Storm Water Management & Erosion Control 
The Village finds that the management of stormwater and other surface water discharge within and beyond Lake Winnebago and the Fox River is a matter that affects the health, safety and welfare of the area, its citizens and businesses and others in the surrounding area. Failure to effectively manage stormwater affects the sanitary sewer utility operations of the area by, among other things, increasing the likelihood of infiltration and inflow in the sanitary sewer. In addition, surface water runoff may create erosion of lands, threaten businesses and residences with water damage, and create sedimentation and other environmental damage in Lake Winnebago and the Fox River. Those elements of the system which provide for the collection of and disposal of stormwater and regulation of groundwater are of benefit and provide services to all property within the area.  The Storm Water Management and Erosion Control Permit review applies to all new, or expansion of, multi-family, commercial, institutional and recreational, and industrial development.  Single Family and Two-Family permits are covered under the Building Permit, please contact the Building Inspector for more information on 1- & 2-family permits.
