Storm Water Management Guide
For Minor Projects
manual's purpose is to inform and assist property owners in meeting stormwater
management requirements when beginning building or land clearing and grading
projects. Property owners are encouraged to consult with the Program Administrator
before commencing or contracting for any project.
A self-help guide, the manual presents an introduction
to the stormwater program, defines jurisdictional projects, and discusses
project application materials and procedures. It includes Best Management
Practices (BMPs - actions and practices that can be used to reduce the
flow rates and constituent concentrations in urban run off) and design
suggestions with information sheets and work sheets intended to aid the
property owner in planning the site improvement.
The guide is organized as a informational booklet with inserts pertaining
to specific stormwater control devices. Accordingly the downloadable files
are arranged the same way. The booklet may be downloaded as well as any
number of the control device information sheets. Please note some of these
are fairly large files and may take quite a while to download over a slow
internet connection. As always copies of this manual can also be requested
by contacting the Commission.
To view and print these files you will need an installed copy of the Adobe
Acrobat Reader®. If you do not have this software, here's how to get
a free copy.
