Center for Watershed Protection – Post-Construction Manual

August 11, 2008

Center for Watershed Protection – Post-Construction Manual

The Center for Watershed Protection has developed a new manual called “Managing Stormwater in Your Community: A Guide for Building an Effective Post-Construction Program.” This manual was developed to assist Phase II communities in developing and building effective post-construction stormwater programs. The manual outlines the major elements of a post-construction program, including the relationship between local land-use decisions and stormwater management. It also covers critical elements such as developing an ordinance and design criteria, implementing a plan review process, establishing a maintenance program, and tracking and evaluating the program. There are also eight related tools, including a self-assessment, model ordinance, manual builder, and more. You can download the manual and tools at The Center for Watershed Protection's documents page Exit EPA Site.

This new manual will be the subject of our next webcast on September 3, 2008.
