The MPCA would like to make you aware of two documents that have been placed on the MPCA Stormwater Web page to assist communities with the development of their post-construction stormwater management program.
The Minimal Impact Design Standards (MIDS) Community Assistance Package (CAP) contains ordinance guidance that will help communities who wish to implement MIDS. The CAP can be found in the Minnesota Stormwater Manual: http://stormwater.pca.state.mn.us/index.php/Community_Assistance_Package
The second document is entitled “Technical Support Document for the Post-Construction Stormwater Management Conditions in the General Stormwater Permit (MNR040000) for Small Municipal Separate Storm Sewer Systems (MS4s)”. This guidance document is intended to help those communities that are regulated by the MS4 Permit to understand the options available for complying with the post construction stormwater management permit conditions (MCM 5). This document can be found at the following link: http://www.pca.state.mn.us/index.php/view-document.html?gid=17815
These documents can also be found on the MPCA MS4 Webpage under the Post Construction Stormwater Management section on the Guidance and BMPs tab. http://www.pca.state.mn.us/sbiza7c
Question concerning these documents can be directed to Scott Fox at 651-757-2368 (Scott.Fox@state.mn.us) or Anne Gelbmann at 651-757-2384 (Anne.Gelbmann@state.mn.us).
