Phase II Stormwater Management Plan
In 2004, the MDEQ issued a NPDES permit to MDOT for MDOT-operated stormwater drainage systems. To comply with the permit, MDOT developed a Stormwater Management Plan (SWMP). The SWMP is designed to enhance the way MDOT does business so that stormwater pollution is reduced or eliminated. Solutions in the SWMP are as simple as good housekeeping, or as complex as building new facilites to manage stormwater.
This SWMP describes the procedures and practices MDOT currently uses throughout the planning, design, construction, operation and maintenance of the transportation infrastructure to limit the discharge of pollutants from its storm drainage systems. It also documents the commitment by MDOT to develop and implement additional stormwater management procedures and practices.
