About the Team
The Stormwater Management Review Team (SMRT) is a team composed of City of Falls Church staff, City Engineer, City Inspector and the City Arborist.

SMRT evaluates development plans as directed by Section 48-840 of the City Code: the Chesapeake Bay Preservation Area Overlay District. These include projects that are subject to a grading plan.

The goal of this review is to reduce the impacts of development on water quality of local streams, the Potomac River, and the Chesapeake Bay. This is achieved through vegetative buffering, low-impact development, and best management practice techniques.
