San Marcos to Address New Private Pond Inspection Requirements

The City of San Marcos will host an open house to answer questions about the new inspection requirements for owners of permanent stormwater management facilities on Thursday, Nov. 15 from 1-3 p.m. at the San Marcos Rec Hall, 170 Charles Austin.  

Owners of stormwater facilities typically include HOAs, commercial properties, and multifamily developments. 

City staff will give a brief presentation and provide information on annual inspection requirements for these facilities. 

Types of stormwater facilities covered include:

 

  • Dry detention
  • Wet detention
  • Bio retention
  • Underground detention
  • Constructed wetland
  • Vegetated swale
  • Permeable pavers
  • Hydrodynamic separators

 
On July 5, 2017 ordinance no. 2017-33 was passed requiring owners of permanent stormwater management facilities to conduct annual inspections of each facility.   

 
The inspection report must be prepared by a Texas-licensed engineer who has been pre-certified by the City of San Marcos. Property owners are required to submit an annual inspection report to the City by Jan. 31, 2019.
