The existing Post Construction Stormwater Best Management Practices (BMP) Construction Review Checklists have been revised and additional checklists have been developed, along with a user guide. The BMP Construction Checklists are provided to assist construction reviewers during post construction stormwater BMP construction.

The DNREC Sediment and Stormwater Program hereby provides notice of the revised regulatory guidance documents, pursuant to 7 Del.C. §4006(i), which incorporates the provisions of 7 Del.C. §6004. A public hearing will NOT be held unless the Secretary receives a meritorious request for a hearing within 15 days of date of this notice, ending February 16, 2023. A request for a public hearing shall be in writing and show familiarity with the regulatory guidance document and provide a reasoned statement of the regulatory guidance document’s probable impact.
