Owners and beneficial users of a stormwater management facility are required to conduct an inspection at least twice a year and to perform the required maintenance. A stormwater management pond checklist is provided to assist owners in their inspections.

Harford County’s stormwater management maintenance program is administered through the Department of Public Works, Bureau of Stormwater Management. In 1984, Harford County enacted a stormwater management ordinance in accordance with COMAR regulations which required counties to implement a maintenance inspection program.

Our program performs inspections every three years to ensure compliance of all stormwater management facilities. Workshops are offered yearly by the Department of Public Works for the benefit of homeowner associations, businesses, and contractors.
