The Bureau of Environmental Services (BES) is proposing an update to the City of Portland Stormwater Management Manual (SWMM), which contains city requirements for stormwater management.
Environmental Services accepted public comment on the proposed Stormwater Management Manual changes through Monday, November 25, 2013. The public comment period is closed.
SWMM updates will provide better consistency with current City Code and other BES Administrative Rules. For more information, read the fact sheet about proposed Stormwater Management Manual changes.
The Portland City Council has approved two ordinances related to Appendix B. One ordinance establishes fees for manufactured technology review and the other approves an interagency agreement with Portland State University. The BES Director will adopt the SWMM in January 2014. Implementation will begin immediately. BES will provide group training on new SWMM elements by request.
