You have completed the flow chart. Return to Flexible treatment options

Select Flexible Treatment Option (FTO) 2

  • Provide regulations and/or cost estimates documenting infeasibility of meeting the original Performance goal;
  • Maximize infiltration BMPs to treat up to the 0.55 inch goal, if possible;
  • Explore non-infiltration volume reduction practices; and
  • Provide report documenting potential hydrologic impacts from infiltration on the site, prepared by a registered engineer, hydrologist, or wetland specialist

Flexible Treatment Option 2 (FTO #2)

Applicant attempts to comply with the following conditions:

  1. Achieve volume reduction to the maximum extent practicable (as determined by the Local Authority), and
  2. Remove 60 percent of the annual total phosphorus load, and
  3. options considered and presented shall examine the merits of relocating project elements to address varying soil conditions and other constraints across the site.


It was determined that

  • there are no site conditions that prevent infiltration but
    • there are adverse surface water hydrologic impacts from infiltration practices and BMP relocation is not feasible; and
    • there are zoning and land use requirements that make the Performance Goal not feasible and BMP relocation is not feasible; or
    • there are existing or proposed structures or infrastructure that make the Performance Goal not feasible and BMP relocation is not feasible.

You have completed the flow chart

If you created a book documenting your steps in the flow chart, create a pdf document and save the pdf document to your computer. You can then disable the book function.

NOTE: The wiki always keeps the most recent working version of your book in memory. However, if you start a new book, you will lose the previous book.
