A reference guide on stormwater related topics for Naval Public Works Officers
MetadataShow full item record
Naval Civil Engineer Corps Officers assigned to Public Works billets often have no background dealing with stormwater. Since stormwater is only one of many issues on their plate, they need a basic reference tool that highlights and discusses stormwater related issues. This report attempts to act as the reference tool that addresses issues important for Naval Officers assigned to Public Works. This report focuses on three primary areas. Officers need to know the laws governing their installation, therefore, legal concerns are addressed with a brief history, federal requirements and state requirements. They must also address the issue of the quality of water leaving the base, therefore, both preventative measures and control measures are presented for best management practices. Lastly, the report includes a discussion on maintenance of existing stormwater conveyance systems since this typically requires significant planning and resources and, a serious failure in this area results in a telephone call from the base Commanding Officer. Several topics contain further references available on the world wide web to provide readily for additional information
