Synthesis of Information Related to Highways. Topic 54-02. Outsourcing Stormwater Best Management Practice Inspection & Maintenance Activities

Post-construction stormwater best management practices (BMPs) are constructed facilities engineered to manage and treat stormwater runoff from impervious surfaces, such as buildings, roads, and parking lots. These BMPs are designed to reduce the amount of stormwater runoff, prevent erosion, and improve water quality by removing pollutants from stormwater. The maintenance and the inspection of these BMPs are critical for supporting functionality and performance. The objective of this synthesis is to document state department of transportation (DOT) practices related to outsourcing post-construction stormwater BMP inspection and maintenance activities.
