A. 
This chapter is adopted by the Town of Ledgeview under the authority granted by § 60.627, Wis. Stats. This chapter supersedes all conflicting and contradictory stormwater management regulations previously enacted under § 60.62, Wis. Stats., that relate to construction site erosion control. Except as specifically provided for in § 60.62, Wis. Stats., applies to this chapter and to any amendments to this chapter.
B. 
The provisions of this chapter are deemed not to limit any other lawful regulatory powers of the Town Board.
C. 
The Town Board hereby designates the Zoning Administrator or designee to have the administrative authority to administer and enforce the provisions of this chapter.
D. 
The requirements of this chapter do not pre empt more stringent erosion and sediment control requirements that may be imposed by any of the following:
(1) 
Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources administrative rules, permits or approvals including those authorized under §§ 281.16 and 283.33, Wis. Stats.
(2) 
Targeted non-agricultural performance standards promulgated in rules by the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources under § NR 151.004, Wis. Adm. Code.
The Town Board finds that uncontrolled stormwater runoff from land-disturbing construction activity has a significant detrimental impact upon water resources and the health, safety, and general welfare of the Town. Specifically, uncontrolled runoff can:
A. 
Degrade physical stream habitat by increasing stream bank erosion, increasing streambed scour, diminishing groundwater recharge, diminishing stream base flows, and increasing stream temperature.
B. 
Diminish the capacity of lakes and streams to support fish, aquatic life, and recreational and water supply uses by increasing pollutant loading of sediment, suspended solids, nutrients, heavy metals, bacteria, pathogens and other urban pollutants.
C. 
Alter wetland communities by changing wetland hydrology and by increasing pollutant loads.
D. 
Reduce the quality of groundwater by increasing pollutant loads.
E. 
Threaten public health, safety, property, and general welfare by overtaxing storm sewers, drainageways and other minor drainage facilities.
F. 
Threaten public health, safety, property and general welfare by increasing major flood peaks and volumes.
G. 
Undermine floodplain management efforts by increasing the incidence and levels of flooding.
H. 
Diminish the public enjoyment of natural resources.
The purpose of this chapter is to set forth stormwater requirements and criteria that will prevent and control water pollution and diminish the threats to public health, safety, welfare, and aquatic life due to runoff of stormwater from land-disturbing construction activity. Specific purposes are to:
A. 
Further the maintenance of safe and healthful conditions.
B. 
Prevent and control the adverse effects of stormwater; prevent and control soil erosion; prevent and control water pollution; protect spawning grounds, fish and aquatic life; control building sites, placement of structures and land uses; preserve ground cover and scenic beauty; and promote sound economic growth.
C. 
Control exceedance of the safe capacity of existing drainage facilities and receiving water bodies; prevent undue channel erosion; control increases in the scouring and transportation of particulate matter; and prevent conditions that endanger downstream property.

H. 
When the Zoning Administrator determines that a permittee has failed to follow practices set forth in the erosion and sediment control plan submitted and approved pursuant to § 36-11 of this chapter or has failed to comply with schedules set forth in said erosion and sediment control plan, the Zoning Administrator or a party designated by the Zoning Administrator may enter upon the land and perform the work or other operations necessary to bring the condition of said lands into conformance with the requirements of the approved erosion and sediment control plan. The Zoning Administrator shall keep a detailed accounting of the costs and expenses of performing this work. These costs and expenses shall be deducted from any financial guaranty posted pursuant to § 36-10D of this chapter.

The Town Board shall also use the rules, procedures, duties and powers authorized by statute in hearing and deciding appeals. Upon appeal, the Town Board may authorize variances from the provisions of this chapter which are not contrary to the public interest and where owing to special conditions a literal enforcement of this chapter will result in unnecessary hardship.
B. 
Who may appeal. Appeals to the Town Board may be taken by any aggrieved person or by an officer, department, board or bureau of the Town affected by any decision of the administering authority.
If any section, clause, provision or portion of this chapter is judged unconstitutional or invalid by a court of competent jurisdiction, the remainder of the chapter shall remain in force and not be affected by such judgment.
