Maintenance Plan

Stormwater quality controls (ponds, bioretention, pervious concrete, sediment capture vaults, etc.) need regular maintenance:

  • management of vegetation
  • removal of sediment
  • litter pick-up
  • cleaning of underground treatment units

Every few years, more extensive maintenance or repair will be needed.

The maintenance plan communicates the expected maintenance issues of a stormwater treatment system. The documents shown below are available to build a maintenance plan. A complete, signed maintenance plan is a requirement prior to obtaining a Land Disturbance Permit.

Several items must be attached to the maintenance plan:

  • a diagram of the site showing stormwater facilities
  • diagrams showing details of the stormwater control measures (SCMs)
  • checklists for inspecting the SCMs

Please complete the plan in digital format and add attachments as a PDF document. Submit to Michele Pinkston at mpinkston@murfreesborotn.gov, with copy to Lexi Stacey at lstacey@murfreesborotn.gov.

The facilities diagram is an uncluttered diagram of the site, identifying location of the site, showing building and pavement footprints and the stormwater control measures on site. The detail sheets – which can be excerpted from construction plans – will be useful to on-site operators and inspectors of the SCMs.

Inspection and maintenance checklists shown below may be used as a part of the maintenance plan. These checklists may modified or tailored to your own checklists. On-site personnel use these checklists to inspect stormwater control measures.
