The San Diego County Copermittees have developed a Model BMP Design Manual for the San Diego Region to conform to new development requirements of the 2013 Municipal Storm Water Permit (Order No. R9-2013-0001). The Model BMP Design Manual provides procedures for planning, selecting and designing onsite structural BMPs for new development and significant redevelopment projects in accordance with Provision E.3 of the 2013 Permit. Additionally, the Regional Manual provides a basis for the development of local BMP Design Manuals by each Stormwater Copermittee in the San Diego region.
Each Copermittee must update its local BMP Design Manual in accordance with the content of the regional Model on or before the February 16, 2016 effective date of the updated requirements of the 2013 Permit. The final Model BMP Design Manual and appendices are attached below, along with applicable supporting documentation and resources.
