Stormwater Public Awareness & Education
As part of its Stormwater Management Program, MDOT has developed outreach materials. These materials emphasize how daily household and construction activities affect stormwater and are designed to be used by the general public, homeowners, children and construction site operators.

Best Management Practices (BMP)
Post construction BMPs are land management practices designed to minimize, treat, and control runoff before entering our rivers, lakes and wetland to improve water quality after a project is complete. MDOT utilizes both structural and operational BMPs to protect receiving waters during construction and post-project. Information on construction stormwater BMPs can be found in the Soil Erosion and Sedimentation Control Manual and the Drainage Manual.
