New and Revised National Menu of BMPs

May 24, 2006

New and Revised National Menu of BMPs

EPA has completed a significant revision of the National Menu of Best Management Practices (BMPs). The new menu has been redesigned to make it easier to browse and search. It also cross references many new resources from other organizations involved in stormwater management. The new Menu now includes a comment feature so that stormwater practitioners and experts can provide suggestions, new data, and additional references.

To keep pace with the rapidly developing field of stormwater management, we have developed approximately 20 new fact sheets to highlight innovative practices. Look for new fact sheets on outreach and education, illicit discharge detection and elimination, concrete washout, post-construction, smart growth, low impact development, green roofs, municipal operations, and many others. You can find the new Menu of BMPs at
