Storm Water Post-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, and are a primary component to many federal, state and local conservation programs.

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

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