Draft Stormwater Design Criteria Manual
The City of Springfield is currently in the process of revising its stormwater design criteria. The city has contracted Wright Water Engineers and Intuition & Logic to complete the new stormwater design criteria manual.

BMP Design
We encourage the use of low impact development design techniques. The following are suggested BMP guidance manuals to supplement Chapter 10.
  • Maryland Stormwater Design Manual
  • APWA / MARC BMP Manual
  • MSD Landscape Guide for Stormwater BMP Design
Chapters Being Developed
  • Chapter 4 - Plan Submittal Requirements
