The WDNR Standard 1060, Storm Drain Inlet Protection for Construction Sites, has been revised and is available for comment from Tuesday, May 13th to Friday June 6th.
The intent of the revision was to include Type D-M and Type D-HR inlet protection devices. The Type D-M and D-HR devices are variations of the existing Type D inlet device and were developed by members of the Green Tier / Clear Waters Environmental Results Program Charter (GTCWI). Type D-M and D-HR devices use different filtering fabrics than the Type D device, and allow for capture of smaller diameter soil particles. Both of the devices have recently been used successfully on several road construction projects within the City of Madison.
If you have questions regarding the revisions of these practice standards, please contact WDNR Stormwater Engineer, Ryan Lentz at Ryan.Lentz@wisconsin.gov or (608) 267-2759.
