Definitions of Best Management Practices (BMPs) as identified in the NPDES permit R9-2009-0003 may be found here. Low Impact Development (LID) BMP Requirements: The City must require each Priority Development Project to implement LID BMPs which will collectively minimize directly connected impervious areas, limit loss of existing infiltration capacity, and protect areas that provide important water quality benefits necessary to maintain riparian and aquatic biota, and/or are particularly susceptible to erosion and sediment loss.
For additional information, general questions or assistance in meeting the requirements of the WQMP template, contact Tracy Ingebrigtsen @ 949-497-0781
