BMP Inspections

Best Management Practices (BMPs) are used to mitigate the effects of development on water quantity and quality.  Inspections are done to ensure that the facilities function as designed over time.  BMPs designed after January 2001 are inspected during initial construction, and at 12 months.  Before the developer’s maintenance bond is released at 18 months, the developer must provide certification that the required facility is in good condition.  After that, the facilities will be inspected on a periodic basis.  The owner of the BMP is contacted if any maintenance is needed.  For “Do-it-Yourself” detention pond maintenance tips, see this brochure.
