Stormwater BMP Maintenance Education for Homeowners [Archive]

4/11/2017 1:00 PM - 2:00 PM

Instructor: Katie Blansett (PHRC)


Link to Webinar:


When a land development project is complete, as part of the Notice of Termination (NOT) the developer will turn over the maintenance responsibilities for the Post Construction Stormwater Management (PCSM) Best Management Practices (BMPs). Long-term operation and maintenance (O&M) can be turned over to the conservation district, a nonprofit organization, the local municipality, an authority, a private corporation, or the homeowner. This webinar will address the items that must be included a PSCM BMP plan and the activities that a homeowner must undertake to maintain BMPs that might be on their lot. The information in this webinar is based on a new resource available from the DEP to help educate homeowners on their maintenance requirements if they are the party responsible for long-term O&M.

Learning Objectives

  1. Identify the components required to be included in a Post Construction Stormwater Management (PCSM) Best Management Practices (BMPs) Plan
