More Examples of Storm Water Best Management Practices


Today’s stormwater management advice comes from across the border in Illinois.   The Prairie Rivers Network, a statewide not-for-profit dedicated to river conservation and restoration,  has published an instructional manual called:  “Stormwater Management:  A Guide to Managing Stormwater With Green Infrastructure.”  The guidebook download is available here.

The Prairie Rivers Network also maintains an active blog that alerts the public to current issues that either threaten rivers or citizen actions that promote restoration and conservation.

The stormwater guidebook covers permitting and regulatory issues; highlights a variety of common sense and easily implemented infiltration practices such as bio-swales, level spreaders, and porous pavement, among others.  The guidebook uses current case studies to showcase examples in Illinois where to see these best management practices in use.

The Stormwater Management Guidebook is richly illustrated, the writing is accessible, and includes links to more technical information.
