Chevy Chase Village Stormwater Committee Community Survey
Please take a few minutes to complete this survey to contribute to the Village's efforts to address stormwater runoff issues. 

This survey has been designed by the Village's Stormwater Committee, which was formed by the Chevy Chase Village Board of Managers in December 2022.  The committee's mandate is to define problems and concerns associated with stormwater runoff, analyze the costs and benefits of possible solutions, and make recommendations to the Village Board.  In carrying out that mandate, the committee wants to gain a thorough understanding of the nature, scope and patterns of stormwater runoff issues affecting Village residents, as well as to explore mitigation techniques that homeowners have implemented.  Developing an understanding of the stormwater problems from residents’ perspectives is critical to identifying solutions that will best address the community’s concerns.

The committee welcomes survey responses from all residents in the Village through Tuesday, June 13, 2023 (one response per household).  While residents are urged to complete the survey online, a printed version of the survey has been mailed to all Village households for those who are unable to access it online.  Regardless of whether your home is directly affected by stormwater runoff, we would like to hear your opinions and experience.  

Responses will be kept confidential and used for Village purposes only.  Thank you very much for your critical assistance.
