The City of Alabaster is providing guidelines to its stormwater planning, design and construction policies and practices to improve their effectiveness in creating development and capital projects that are more "sustainable" and cost effective. Many of the current policies and practices were developed many years ago.
The overall project goal is to complete a comprehensive assessment of stormwater management policies and practices and revise appropriate documents to provide an integrated, "watershed wise" approach that is technically sound, cost effective and practical to implement, resulting in more "sustainable" stormwater systems.

It is also a goal of this project to create an open, responsive process that allows all interested parties to participate through appropriate levels of commitment and to adequately exchange information about the project. Please feel free to contribute to the completion of this project through participation in our stakeholder meetings, public meetings or by membership in an "issue group".
