Stormwater post-construction best management practices 

Also known as the city’s Treatment Control Best Management Practices (TCBMP) program element, post-construction storm water management requires reducing pollution by incorporating various systems into the overall project. All existing and future development and redevelopment projects must comply with this program element.

While effective storm water and water quality management begins during the design phase of new construction and redevelopment projects, post-construction best management practices typically allow stormwater to infiltrate into the ground and/or treat the storm water to remove various pollutants prior to discharge.

Some of the more common pollutants that these systems manage include: sediments, chemicals, oils and grease, metals, and nutrients, as well as erosion and flooding. In order to ensure regulatory compliance we recommend that the following pertinent regulatory documents be reviewed prior to plan submission.
