Stormwater Best Management Practices (BMP) Inspection

stormwater filtration examples

Properly constructed and maintained BMPs are critical in achieving greater water quality for our community as a whole.

Post-construction stormwater management is typically accomplished through stormwater Best Management Practices (BMPs). These BMPs include constructed stormwater infiltration systems, bioretention systems, stormwater detention facilities, or various manufactured systems. More common names are rain gardens, bioretention, sand filters, detention basins and infiltration systems.

All types of BMPs are designed to mitigate the effects of development by reducing stormwater runoff volume and rates while promoting removal of pollutants and improving runoff quality.
