Storm Water Management - Post Construction

Use the following text if the project will affect storm water drainage.

4.03.6 Post-construction Stormwater Management in New Development and Redevelopment.

The goal for this minimum control measure is to develop, implement, and enforce a program to address discharges of post-construction stormwater runoff from new development and redevelopment areas.

Post-construction stormwater management controls includes permanent structural and non-structural Best Management Practices (BMPs). Examples that remain in place after the project is completed and prevent pollution from the new development in the long-run are:

  • Conservation of natural and permeable areas
  • Permeable pavers
  • Rooftop runoff infiltration galleries
  • Mechanical storm drain filters

MEP Standards

Develop and implement strategies which include a combination of structural and/or non-structural post-construction BMPs.

Have a management, contracting, or other mechanism requiring the implementation of post-construction runoff controls.

Ensure adequate long-term operation and maintenance of controls.

Determine the appropriate BMPs and measurable goals for this minimum control measure.
