Original Manual development

The Minnesota Stormwater Steering Committee had its genesis in the Stormwater Design Team, which began its activities in September 2003. Discussion within this team led to the recognition that a state-sponsored stormwater manual was needed to provide guidance for the many practitioners trying to make their way through a complicated stormwater management program in the state.

The Stormwater Design Team evolved into the Minnesota Stormwater Steering Committee, which initiated the production of this Minnesota Stormwater Manual. Preparation of the manual was guided by the committee’s Manual Subcommittee. The following individuals were involved in the initiation, preparation, or review of this document:
