Proactive Planning

The Global TransPark has dedicated its resources to prevent stormwater runoff into waterways. The Global TransPark Authority operates under a National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System Permit​ which allows the Global TransPark to discharge stormwater from the storm sewer system to receiving waters (i.e., Wheat Swamp, Stonyton Creek, Briery Run and Gum Swamp Drainage Basins) in the Neuse River Basin.

As part of the requirements of the permit, the Global TransPark has prepared and implemented a stormwater pollution prevention plan to control, limit and monitor its stormwater discharge.
