As one of the divisions responsible for maintaining James City County's high quality of life, the James City County Stormwater and Resource Protection (SRP) Division is seeking an experienced administrator to lead the division and to fulfill the mission of the County of working in partnership with all citizens to achieve a quality community.

The SRP Division implements programs to control storm runoff from development and protect residents, businesses, properties and County waterways. The comprehensive program addresses runoff issues before development occurs, during construction and after infrastructure is in the ground and operational. The Division provides post-construction technical assistance to private stormwater infrastructure owners through workshops and matching grants.
