Stormwater Condition Assessment Project

Project Overview

In 2022, the Town of Apex began collecting a stormwater utility fee from residential and non-residential utility customers. The stormwater utility fee provides a dedicated fund for the stormwater program. The first project funded by the fee is the Stormwater Condition Assessment. This project, that began with Phase 1 in June 2023, assesses the condition of town-maintained stormwater infrastructure and prioritize enhancement and repair projects based on identified needs.

The project includes:

  • Inspections of stormwater infrastructure like catch basins, storm drains, storm pipes, culverts, and outfalls
  • Creating a list of future Capital Improvement Projects by using an objective, scoring-based matrix to prioritize and address infrastructure needs 

What you can expect:

  • McAdams of Raleigh, NC and VisionNC of Raleigh, NC, both contracted by the Town of Apex, working on this project. 
  • Seeing personnel from these companies out inspecting and assessing infrastructure in the Phase 2 study area (view the study area map). Please allow these contractors to temporarily access the public easements on or near your property. We appreciate your help in completing this project.
  • McAdams and VisionNC personnel should have a copy of the letter from the Water Resources department with information about this project.
