LAKE CHARLES, La. (KPLC) -  
Beginning July 1, the City of Lake Charles will require a Stormwater Grading Plan and Permit for certain commercial and residential projects.

Those projects include new residential construction, the addition of swimming pools, driveways or parking areas, lot clearing, the removal or addition of grading that affects stormwater flow, soil disturbance during property clearing, portable and non-portable accessory building foundations and any other activity where stormwater runoff affects adjacent property owners or outflows into the storm drains.
