Construction Site BMPs (Specifications, Standard Plans, and Guidance)

Unless noted, all of the standard special provisions (SSPs) have been converted to Plain Language Version (PLV) in anticipation of the 2010 Specification effort. Many of the existing water pollution control SSPs will be absorbed into the published 2010 Standard Specifications.

Non-standard edits (NSSPs) must be cleared through the Office of Storm Water Management Design (OSWMD) unless a different owner is noted. Some specifications only exist as NSSPs and always require HQ concurrence.
