Construction sites within the City of Hendersonville are required to adhere to the water quality and water quantity requirements laid out in the Stormwater Ordinance.  The City requires that these construction site operators properly design, install and maintain stormwater pollution prevention measures throughout construction. 

Below are some common construction issues that need to be brought to the City's attention to help reduce stormwater pollution:
