The Stormwater Management Division administers the Town of Leland’s Stormwater Management Program.
Stormwater management is a state and federally mandated program requiring the Town to reduce pollution in Leland’s waterways. This is accomplished through a variety of focus areas: public education outreach, public involvement, illicit discharge detection and prevention, construction site runoff, post construction best management practices and pollution prevention.
In Leland, runoff flows through a complex, interconnected system of pipes, ditches, creeks and other natural and man-made features before finally making its way to the Cape Fear and Brunswick Rivers. The quality of our local waters is directly related to land uses and other actions on land.
It is everyone’s responsibility to keep our water clean! If you see a stormwater problem, please call the Stormwater Hotline at!
The Town of Leland has updated the Stormwater Ordinance, which is effective on December 31st, 2020. In addition, the Town of Leland Stormwater Design Manual has been created, which is intended to be used in tandem with the updated Stormwater Ordinance. Links to both of these documents are below.
