Maintenance Stormwater Field Guide

The intent of this guide is to be a quick reference for maintenance staff on topics related to BMP inspection and common operational practices. Good housekeeping and other pollution source control measures are presented. Using the tips in this guide will help in complying with federal and state regulations for stormwater quality. It will also help achieve a greater level of environmental stewardship. This guide is not a design manual or a substitute for a pollution prevention plan.

This publication includes descriptions of BMPs and how to maintain them. It is organized based on common highway and facility operational practices. Oftentimes a single BMP can be used for many different operations. The information presented in this guide is based on techniques and control measures considered generally effective in many areas of the country. Local conditions may require that the practices discussed in this guide be altered, or used with other measures. This guide may also be augmented by DOTs to provide more information to suit local practices and field conditions.
