Stormwater Case Studies

EPA has developed a series of stormwater case studies to help Phase II municipal separate storm sewer systems (MS4s) get started on or improve their stormwater management programs. Each case study is a two- to three-page description of how a Phase I or Phase II community has implemented a specific aspect of its stormwater program. The case studies are organized by minimum measure, but they do not necessarily represent all the activities that each community is undertaking to implement that minimum measure. Each case study description includes links to materials that further describe or were developed for the case study and the minimum control measure.

You can search the stormwater case studies in three different ways:

Browse Case Studies by Minimum Control Measure
Pick a minimum control measure:
Select a Case Study by Location Or Title
Pick a case study location: Pick a case study title
Search Case Studies by Keyword

Phase I and Phase II municipal stormwater programs should use these case studies as a tool to generate ideas and help develop and improve their own stormwater programs. Although EPA has reviewed the case studies, they should not be considered officially endorsed by the Agency and are not intended to represent full compliance with EPA’s stormwater Phase II minimum control measures. Each community must decide on the appropriate best management practices necessary to meet its unique permit requirements and local conditions.
