||BMP Inspection and Maintenance Program
Stormwater best management practices (BMPs) can be highly effective at removing pollutants from incoming runoff. However, all BMP structures require regular maintenance to continue functioning properly over time. NCDOT has implemented a BMP Inspection and Maintenance Program which manages the ongoing inspection and maintenance needs of its BMPs. The objective of this program is to keep the BMPs in good operating condition in order to achieve maximum pollutant removal. NCDOT developed a BMP Inspection and Maintenance Manual which includes written procedures outlining the inspection and maintenance requirements for stormwater BMPs on NCDOT's Right-of-way. Staff receive training based on this manual and track activities in the Stormwater Controls Management System.
