Post-Construction Site Runoff

The City of Lake Oswego Planning, Public Works, and Building divisions share review responsibilities for development applications. Specifically the Planning and Engineering Divisions review development proposals for consistency with any applicable regulatory Comprehensive Plan policies, and for consistency with applicable community development code requirements (i.e., zoning and development standards), including compliance with natural resource protection standards for wetlands, stream corridors, floodplains, etc., and with other City code provisions related to development. The Engineering Division specifically evaluates development proposals and conducts site plan reviews with regards to proposed stormwater conveyance, treatment, and disposal. Information on design requirements and standards can be found in our Lake Oswego Stormwater Management Manual.
