An assessment is technical advice given to a homeowner regarding possible solutions to flooding, drainage, erosion, or other stormwater or stream related concerns. It consists of an onsite consultation with the assessment provider and a detailed report/assessment customized to the property and owner’s interests.
Examples of Stormwater-Related Concerns
Single family residential property owners within the Town’s municipal limits are eligible.
It depends on the number of applications received. If more applications are received than the project can support, applications will be ranked based on the subwatershed/location, the magnitude of the stormwater issue, racial and social equity, and other potential selection criteria.
There are many ways to apply!
*Hard copy applications should be mailed to the following:
Town of Carrboro
Attn: Stormwater Division, Public Works Department
301 W. Main Street
Carrboro, NC 27510
Applications should be submitted as soon as possible; they will be screened, prioritized, and scheduled for assessment as they are received. Scheduling for assessments will begin in January and continue through the winter and early spring as capacity allows. Based on the volume of applications received, a firm deadline for receiving applications could be established as the project proceeds.

Applicants will be contacted within several weeks of the receipt of the application. They may also call 919-913-2999 or email firstname.lastname@example.org for information and updates.
