Designing Successful Stormwater Facilities with Maintenance and Enforcement in Mind

Learn how facility type, location, design, and approach can impact the overall success of today's most widely implemented stormwater facilities from the people who work every day to keep them up and running.

This workshop covers:

  • Maintenance responsibilities and capabilities of a large stormwater maintenance organization and the typical issues encountered with facility design
  • A wide variety of case studies involving facilities that failed and became maintenance headaches; learn what steps you can take to ensure your facilities do not suffer a similar fate
  • How managers structure private stormwater programs and what site elements are critical to maintenance and enforcement at those facilities
  • Explore the struggles that homeowners and enforcement officials face when trying to maintain or reestablish private stormwater facilities with daunting design issues
  • Practice stormwater plan review and implement the lessons learned to critically assess stormwater facility types, layouts, and other features
  • Work as a group to identify potential points of failure and means of making sites more maintenance and enforcement friendly in order to prolong the lifespan of onsite stormwater facilities.
