Operations and Maintenance Manual Templates

Designing Stormwater Facilities


The design of all stormwater management facilities within the County must be performed with access and long-term operation and maintenance being priority considerations. An Operation and Maintenance Manual must be developed concurrent with the design for all:
  • Detention ponds
  • Open channels
  • Post-construction water quality BMPs
  • Other stormwater facilities as determined by the county

Operation and Maintenance Manual


The information that is provided in the O&M Manual will help the owner’s maintenance personnel understand the facility, will provide guidance for inspection and maintenance operations specific to the type of facility, and will provide mechanisms for ensuring that the long-term maintenance of the facility is performed.
