Timelines shown below are approximate. We update this page infrequently.
The work includes the following.
1. Develop and enhance guidance and resources for permittees to evaluate TMDL-related permit compliance. This would include developing guidance for more robust modeling tools and general monitoring guidance that permittees could use to assess:
2. Develop outreach, training, and/or workshops to accompany these resources.

Update existing information and provide new information on active construction site erosion prevention and sediment control, including general and technical information on BMPs. Potential BMPs include the following.

Develop and disseminate information on case studies of water quality projects for Municipal Separate Storm Sewer System (MS4) permittees. The case studies cover a range of MS4 permit issues and types of MS4s (cities, townships, colleges, watershed districts/watershed management organizations).

Studies show that constructed stormwater ponds can export phosphorus. We will execute a work order to compile existing information on phosphorus dynamics in ponds, conditions that result in phosphorus export, and recommended design, construction, and maintenance practices. NOTE this is an area where further research is needed, and the information obtained through this work order is likely to be limited by knowledge gaps on this topic.

We are pursuing opportunities to address the following topics, with the goal of developing guidance for the stormwater manual.
We have created a portal page containing links to pages addressing Green Infrastructure. We continue to work on pages associated with this topic.
We continue updating information on road salt as time allows.
