State revises storm-water guide

Posted online
The Missouri Department of Natural Resources has revised guidelines aimed at helping developers and contractors to better manage storm-water runoff from construction sites and minimize erosion that causes water pollution.

A new publication, “Protecting Water Quality: A field guide to erosion, sediment and storm-water best management practices for development sites in Missouri and Kansas,” also explains the causes of storm-water pollution and its potential impact on communities, according to a DNR news release.

The guide also explains the causes of storm-water pollution and its potential impact on community life and provides best management practices and strategies.

Updates include designs with fewer or smaller detention basins and more rain garden practices.
The publication also explores an emerging emphasis on environmental site design, with illustrations of Midwestern examples and a construction site inspection checklist.

The revised booklet was in development for more than a year and can be downloaded at www.dnr.mo.gov.[[In-content Ad]]
