Local governments in Florida are required to provide stormwater management systems. As part of MS4 permitting and the TMDL program, they must also ensure that adequate treatment of stormwater discharges are provided and that the stormwater management system is properly maintained. Best Management Practices (BMPs) such as wet detention ponds and retention ponds are common treatments. Increasingly, low-impact development/Green Infrastructure (LID/GI) practices such as pervious pavement and bioretention are being added to the growing collection of BMPs available to provide treatment. Regardless of the treatment type, every BMP is expected to function in perpetuity and this requires consideration during design, routine inspections, and an efficient maintenance program. This Seminar will draw on the expertise of multiple professionals across Florida who are responsible for stormwater BMP maintenance to provide insights on ways to improve your approach to stormwater maintenance.
