VDOT Manual of Practice for Stormwater Management

Report No: 05-CR5

Published in 2004

About the report:

This document is a revision of the VDOT Manual of Practice for Planning Stormwater Management prepared in 1991. The objective of this revised manual is to provide updated information regarding the management of stormwater at VDOT projects and facilities. This manual is significantly different from the previous manual, since this revision highlights differences in stormwater management practices as they are applied to both linear projects (i.e., roads) and facility projects (i.e., maintenance areas). This document purposely does not duplicate information easily found in other manuals such as the VDOT Erosion and Sediment Control and Stormwater Management Manual and the VDOT Drainage Manual but instead provides up-to-date findings on relevant federal, state, and local regulations and requirements and the latest data regarding the selection, design, and use of best management practices.
