Standards & Procedures Manual

The Town of Huntersville’s Engineering Standards and Procedures Manual (ESAPM) is a resource that will assist in ensuring compliance with all Town requirements related to proposed land development activities inside the Town limits and within its Extraterritorial Jurisdiction (ETJ).

It is the Town’s goal that the ESAPM present clear and concise technical requirements, policies, and procedures while providing the guidance and details necessary for an effective and efficient process.

The ESAPM is intended as a supplement to the Town Zoning Ordinance, Subdivision Ordinance, and Water Quality Design Manual.  County, State, and Federal agencies may also have additional requirements not provided for or referenced within this manual.  This manual does not relieve the design professional of the responsibility to correctly incorporate the provided information.  It is the Design Engineer’s responsibility to provide technical adequacy of the design using engineering judgment, experience, and sufficient knowledge in providing all related design elements.

The Town of Huntersville’s Director of Engineering & Public Works shall be responsible for incorporating revisions as deemed appropriate based on a continual review of the ESAPM.  Copies of the manual will be made available for a fee through the Huntersville Engineering & Public Works Department.


An updated Standards Manual has been uploaded.  All new projects must adhere to the Engineering Standards and Procedures Manual dated August 1, 2017.
