What is Stormwater Management?

Andrew Demers Stormwater Training

When soil disturbance and vegetation removal occurs during construction projects, there is a drastic increase in water and wind erosion. Consequently, when rain events take place, water inevitably flows through those unprotected, eroded soil surfaces and have the potential to transport sediment into U.S. waterways. This sediment-laden water is referred to as, “stormwater.”

As that “stormwater” flows over construction and industrial sites, it can  carry other pollutants ranging from pesticides, chemicals and asphalt, to petroleum, and other debris collected from the soil surface and deposit those materials into water sources that serve as drinking water, aquatic habitats, and even public beaches and swimming areas.

Urban stormwater discharged from storm sewers, often referred to as “Municipal Separate Storm Sewer Systems” (MS4s), has been found to be a leading source of water quality impairment. The stormwater flow picks up and transports these pollutants and then discharges contaminated water into U.S. waterways through MS4s.

The Clean Water Act and other relevant mandates require that all federal and state regulated construction sites, Municipal Separate Storm Sewer Systems (MS4) communities and industrial sites be covered under a National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) stormwater permit to have the ability to legally discharge stormwater into waters of the United States of America.

Most, if not all, of the mandatory stormwater permits require that the implementation of erosion and sediment control (ESC) Best Management Practices (BMPs) are applied to curtail and minimize pollutant discharges entering surface waters, MS4s and other bodies of water such as lakes, streams, rivers and oceans.
