The City of Lexington is a federally designated NPDES Phase II community and is currently managing a Stormwater Management Program. The City received its Individual Stormwater Permit November 11, 2016 from North Carolina Department of Environmental Quality Division of Energy, Mineral and Land Natural Resources (NCDEQ-DEMLR).

The stormwater program operates as a division of the Water Resources Department. Water Resources continues to coordinate management activities of multiple departments using both City resources and contract services. Existing City departments most involved include Engineering, Planning and Inspections, Water & Wastewater, and Public Works and Recycling/Waste Collection. The Street Department maintains responsibility for drainage and infrastructure located within the City’s transportation right-of-ways.

This site is under continuous development and interested persons should monitor occasionally for updates. To find out more about stormwater, please visit the Public Education Section. Persons needing additional information may contact the Water Resources Department.

To report stormwater or stream related issues, please contact Public Services at (336) 248-3930.
