New Stormwater Guidance Documents from the Center for Watershed Protection

September 22, 2008

New Stormwater Guidance Documents from the Center for Watershed Protection

Under grants from EPA, the Center for Watershed Protection (CWP) has developed two new documents that will be of interest to stormwater managers and staff around the country.

First, CWP has developed a new manual called "Municipal Pollution Prevention/Good Housekeeping Practices (Manual 9)." This manual presents practical, “how to” guidance for developing and implementing pollution prevention practices at municipal facilities and operations such as public works yards, parks, road maintenance and repair, and many others.

Second, CWP has developed a new document called "Monitoring to Demonstrate Environmental Results: Guidance to Develop Local Stormwater Monitoring Studies Using Six Example Study Designs." This document, a joint production with the University of Alabama, presents the broad concepts and methods behind setting up special monitoring studies in support of the NPDES stormwater permitting program. The monitoring study presents a range of options for municipalities to consider depending their goals, objectives, and budgets.

Both of these documents are available for free download at
