Information for Developers and Builders Operating in Hastings, Nebraska
Municipal/State erosion and sediment control permit requirements for land disturbance activities equal to or greater than one acre, OR for land disturbance activities less than one acre that are part of a larger common development.

On April 12, 2010 the Stormwater Management Ordinance which targets to improve water quality in our local waterways was adopted by City Council. The Stormwater Ordinance can be found under Chapter 42 of the Municipal Code. The adoption of this ordinance came as a requirement of the City's Stormwater Discharge Permit issued by the Nebraska Department of Environmental Quality (NDEQ). As a designated Phase II municipality, one of the areas required to be overseen by the City is construction site stormwater management which will be adapted in mid 2010.

The adopted Stormwater Ordinance requires all developers and builders to obtain an NDEQ Stormwater Permit and an Erosion and Sediment Control (ESC) plan for all land disturbance activities equal to or greater than one acre, or for land disturbance activities less than one acre that are part of a larger common development. Failure to obtain permits/plans for applicable projects will result in non-compliance at federal, state and local governments. It is the City's goal to implement the Stormwater Management Plan without delaying the construction throughout Hastings. Developers and Builders should therefore plan ahead when preparing permits that may require an associated ESC plan.
