In 2022, the Town of Apex began collecting a stormwater utility fee from residential and non-residential utility customers. The stormwater utility fee provides a dedicated fund for the stormwater program. The first project funded by the fee is the Stormwater Condition Assessment. This project, with Phase 1 beginning in June 2023, will assess the condition of town-maintained stormwater infrastructure and prioritize enhancement and repair projects based on identified needs.
The project includes:
Inspections of stormwater infrastructure like catch basins, storm drains, storm pipes, culverts, and outfalls
Creating a list of future Capital Improvement Projects by using an objective, scoring-based matrix to prioritize and address infrastructure needs
What you can expect:
The Town of Apex has contracted with McAdams of Raleigh, NC and VisionNC of Raleigh, NC to complete the project.
Personnel from these companies will inspect and assess infrastructure in the Phase 1 study area (view the study area map).
Utility customers in the study area may see McAdams and / or VisionNC personnel. Please allow these contractors to temporarily access the public easements on or near your property. We appreciate your help in completing this project.
McAdams and VisionNC personnel should have a copy of the letter from the Water Resources department with information about the project.
