Best management practices
Regulated municipalities and other municipal separate storm sewer system (MS4) operators must prevent pollutants from entering their storm drainage systems. One element of this requirement is preventing stormwater pollution by municipal facilities such as fleet maintenance shops, bus barns, sanitation facilities, parks and street sweeping operations. The US EPA has published a "National Menu of BMPs" that describes the Best Management Practices (BMPs) that can be used to accomplish this task. Training MS4 employees on these BMPs is crucial to any effective program. "Rain Check - Stormwater Pollution Prevention for MS4s" shows employees how to practice good housekeeping, spill response, materials management, vehicle fueling and washing and the other BMPs profiled in the "National Menu."
