The purpose of this manual is to provide practical guidance for municipalities on how to best implement their storm water management programs. This manual is intended to help municipalities through this implementation process for their storm water management program. A basic seven-step planning process described in this report provides a framework for effective decision-making and long-term planning. Municipalities are encouraged to revisit decisions made during Parts 1 and 2 of the permit application process to reassess their overall planning strategies, selected controls, policies, and programmatic measures.
