This erosion/pollution problem existed in July 2006 when the Aspen Ridge workers left this construction site and never returned

Please click on image to ENLARGE view of March 10, 2009, runoff from development site in Fayetteville, Arkansas, where contractors have replaced the absorbent, rich, black prairie soil with yellow and red dirt that runs off rapidly after each rain. The receiving stream is the Town Branch of the West Fork of the White River, which is a tributary of the White River and Beaver Lake, northwest Arkansas' main source of water.

The storm drain really didn't matter, did it? The problem is having all that dirt unvegetated. Is there not a detention pond or one of your pet "rain gardens" in place to allow that stuff to settle out before it enters the stormwater system?
