We began with a 3-part series on Knowing the Rules and Doing Your Homework, Temporary Measures during Construction and Dewatering (these were recorded and are available on our LMS at www.tranlearning.org).

Part 6 of 6: Retention and Detention Ponds:
Oftentimes during construction, we build our post-construction stormwater best management practices (BMPs) with the mentality that they are “out of sight, out of mind” once construction comes to a close. While this mindset might work a little while, BMPs will always fail for a variety of reasons if they are not maintained properly. The first step to any efficient BMP maintenance program is to make sure that BMPs are designed and installed correctly. Then, follow through to verify routine inspection and maintenance is performed throughout the life of the BMP.
