Operation and Maintenance

The MACC developed the Stormwater Best Management Practice Operation and Maintenance Guide to assist contractors, engineers and others in developing operation and maintenance plans required by maintenance agreements in West Michigan communities. The guide outlines information to include in an operation and maintenance plan and a plan template. This is complemented with fact sheets about various stormwater practices and inspection checklists. The guide also includes templates for recording maintenance activities and evaluating plan implementation. The entire guide is provided in one pdf document (click the graphic below). Fillable versions of checklists and forms are provided as well as a Word version of the template for easy editing.
