In support of the City of Seguin stormwater program, the City has identified the need to create clear, defined design guidance for consistent stormwater infrastructure design. With the increased growth, the City has determined that a robust technical document is required. Such documents are standard in most surrounding cities and will allow the City to define design criteria that will ultimately support a strong Stormwater Program. For cities in this region of Texas, it is certain development is going to occur. In order to ensure that development occurs with appropriate designs and within acceptable impact to our community, we must create and establish criteria that is clear, consistent, concise and relevant. Development of the first Stormwater Criteria Manual for Seguin will ensure that that we require new development to occur in accordance with current engineering practice and with minimal impacts to our existing and future residents.
