Storm Water Construction Technical Standards

Storm water construction technical standards are documents that specify the minimum requirements needed to plan, design, install and maintain a wide array of conservation practices aimed at preserving the land and water resources of Wisconsin during construction. They are based on current research, field experience, the best available technology.

The WDNR has approved the technical standards listed below as adequate and effective to implement the performance standards of subch. III or IV of ch. NR 151 for erosion/sediment control or storm water management during construction.

Note: See the Errata notes at the end of the table for updates to the standards.
