The purpose of this document is to provide guidance to municipalities and their development community. In particular, this guide will assist communities, developers and contractors in complying with state and federal stormwater regulations while building vibrant communities. Guidance is offered on tools, processes and other resources that best meet the community’s specific social, environmental and economic needs. It also aids compliance with the Municipal Separate Storm Sewer System (MS4) permit requirements for permanent runoff management – requirements that have changed significantly over the past several years as a way to meet the country’s renewed water quality goals.
This guide addresses economic costs and benefits to developers and municipalities, as well as environmental benefits. Much state-of-the-practice management has been reviewed, excellent ideas have been incorporated and numerous technical manuals have been referenced. (2012) Missouri Department of Natural Resources.
