6 Stormwater Management Plan Minimum Control Measures (MCMs)
Public Education and Outreach (PEO)
The purpose of the PEO MCM is to educate the public on the benefits of keeping our receiving waters clean of pollutants in an effort to significantly reduce the amount of stormwater pollutants that enter our stormwater systems.
Public Involvement and Participation (PIP)
Illicit Discharge Detection and Elimination (IDDE)
Construction Stormwater Management (CSW)
With the CSW MCM, public or private construction activities must select, install, implement and maintain stormwater control measures that comply with local erosion and sediment control, pollution prevention and other stormwater requirements.
Post-Construction Stormwater Management (PCSW)
The PCSW MCM ensures that the permittee must develop or maintain, implement and enforce programs to control stormwater discharges from new development and redeveloped sites. This applies to private and public development sites, including roads.
Good Housekeeping/Pollution Prevention (GH/PP)
The GH/PP MCM minimizes the effect of the municipality’s efforts to the contribution of stormwater pollutants into receiving waters. Certain operations have been identified to have the greatest likelihood to cause pollution to stormwater runoff, so municipal employees are educated and trained in standard operation procedures to reduce these pollutants.
