Pennsylvania Stormwater BMP Revision Committee Moving Forward

December 2010Newsletters In the Zone

Stormwater PA reports the Stormwater Technical Advisory Workgroup (aka BMP Manual Revision Committee) continues to make progress on reviewing Pennsylvania’s current Stormwater Best Management Practices Manual (2006). The group of engineers and stormwater professionals has been drafting changes to the manual with an eye on releasing the proposed alterations in early 2011.

The group has been meeting since early 2009 to discuss methods to edit and improve the current manual. Objectives of the group ranged from correcting typographical errors to changing the Recommended Control Guidelines to water quality concerns to site evaluation procedures.
