stormwater maintenance program
Stormwater Maintenance Program
  • All BMP Maintenance is private except for County owned BMPs and Regional Facilities
  • County completes inspections of all post-construction BMPs (approx. 750) on a 1-2 year interval
  • County charges nominal fees (based on # and type of BMP) to the owner
  • County allows the BMP owner to have a licensed professional complete the inspection if they desire and send an inspection report to the County for review
  • County resumed maintenance inspections in January 2009 and had not completed maintenance inspections since the early 90’s due to workload and insufficient staff.
inspection process
Inspection Process
  • Facilities inspected by a two-person team to ensure consistency and safety
  • Owners notified by letter 1 month before inspection, are invited to participate
  • Inspection completed based on requirements of the VA Stormwater Management Handbook
  • Maintenance “punch-list” sent to owner and owner has 90 days to complete maintenance
findings
Findings
  • Many BMP owners willing to comply
  • Many need guidance with identifying deficiencies and finding contractors
  • Some owners, particularly non-profits and HOA’s concerned about cost of inspections and maintenance
  • Some owners completely ignore requests
  • Some BMPs in very “critical” condition
maintenance of lid
Maintenance of LID
  • County’s SWM requirements often prescribe the use of LID facilities to comply with SWM requirements
  • Many LID facilities are newly constructed and not yet released from construction bond, therefore maintenance experience for these facilities is still limited at this time.
  • Maintenance needs for the LID facilities that have been inspected has mostly been cosmetic (i.e. debris removal, replacement of vegetation and mulch)
bmp maintenance training class
BMP Maintenance Training Class
  • County hosted two training classes on BMP Maintenance for BMP owners and property managers
  • First class was well attended but low turnout for second class
  • Class focuses on common maintenance issues and County inspection program details
  • Plan to hold future training that is more detailed or technical
