Construction Site Storm Water Runoff Control

Below are a list of pdf resource documents for controlling water runoff.

  1. Best Management Practices (BMPs) for Controlling Erosion, Sediment, and Pollutant Runoff from Construction SitesThis Planning and Technical Specifications Manual contains information on Best Management Practices (BMPs) for preventing, reducing, and controlling erosion, sediment, and pollutant runoff from construction sites and other cleared, excavated, or filled areas. The manual was developed to help engineers, landscape architects, developers, construction managers, and others plan and implement measures that reduce harmful water quality impacts from construction projects and other land-clearing activities. The manual begins by explaining potential water quality impacts from construction and development, then summarizes applicable federal, state, and local regulations. The next sections explain basic principles for selecting, designing, and implementing construction site BMPs and provide detailed information on the most commonly used BMPs.

  2. Kentucky Erosion Prevention and Sediment Control FIELD GUIDEThis Field Guide will take you through the erosion and sediment control process. The guide starts out with sections on pre-project planning and operational activities. The rest of the guide discusses erosion prevention and sediment control by starting at the top of the hill, above the project site, and proceeding down the slope through the bare soil area, ditches and channels, traps and basins, and on down to the waterways below.

  3. Kentucky Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (KPDES) General Permit for Stormwater Discharges Associated with Construction Activities (KYR10)The Kentucky Division of Water (DOW) is reissuing the general permit that authorizes the discharge of pollutants in storm water discharges associated with both small and large construction activities (also known as the “construction general permit” or “KYR10”). As used in this permit, “storm water associated with construction activity” refers to the disturbance of one or more acres or is a part of a larger common plan of development or sale if the larger common plan will ultimately disturb one acre or more. This KYR10 will replace all previous versions of KYR10 issued by DOW. The conditions and requirements contained herein shall supersede the conditions and requirements of all previous versions except as delineated within the permit.
