Advanced Standards Review and Vermont Stormwater Management Manual Update

Since Vermont’s first Stormwater Management Manual (VSMM) was published in April of 2002, substantial advances in the range of stormwater treatment practices and site design approaches have been made nationally. In 2012, the Vermont Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) Stormwater Program staff worked with Stone Environmental to identify state-of-the-art stormwater management approaches and specific practices including, but not limited to, low impact development (LID) techniques, green infrastructure approaches, and emerging stormwater management concepts such as “runoff reduction” that the Program could consider as part of planned revisions to the VSMM. Other key topics included: site characterization standards and guidelines; alternatives to the channel protection volume (CPv) standard; integrating LID concepts into the VSMM; and requirements for, and implementation of, maintenance plans in other jurisdictions.
