Stormwater Design Criteria Manual

Over the past 18 months, the City has been working to update the Stormwater Design Criteria Manual.  A committee composed of representatives from various stakeholder groups was formed and met in a series of six meetings from December 2015 to October 2016.  During these meetings, City staff provided an overview of the major topics of the manual and presented proposed updates to the 2007 version which is currently in use.  Significant changes have been made to the manual based on the committee’s feedback.  The City is currently accepting comments on the updated draft chapters.  Please provide any final comments in writing to Chris Dunnaway by email at or by mail at 840 N. Boonville, Springfield, MO 65802.
