Document Type: 
Best Management Practices
Author Name: 
Eban Bean, Lynn Jarrett, Jennison Kipp Searcy, Mary Szoka

The manual begins by presenting the relevant background, introducing fundamentals of stormwater management and impacts on water resources, as well as relevant terminology (Ch. 1). Local context is then integrated to clearly show the unique hydrogeological constraints and policy framework of Southeast Florida (Ch. 2). With the local context as the background, the manual then takes the reader through the steps for site planning (Ch. 3), planning for stormwater management (Ch. 4), various types of low-impact development stormwater control measures (Ch. 5), evaluating stormwater control measure options (Ch. 6), operation and maintenance (Ch. 7), and evaluating the performance of stormwater control measures (Ch. 8). Successful implementation of the strategies depends on public acceptance, which makes public education (Ch. 9) an important part of the process.
