Wisconsin DNR Technical Standard 1060 Storm Drain Inlet Protection For Construction Sites is available for review and comment until September 17, 2021.

The Wisconsin DNR Technical Standard 1060 Storm Drain Inlet Protection For Construction Sites was revised to incorporate the use of rigid frame type inlet protection devices and aid in device selection. This practice is intended to minimize sediment from entering storm drainage systems in areas where the contributing drainage area is temporarily disturbed or receives traffic from temporarily disturbed areas nearby.  We are now soliciting comments from the public on the updated draft, available at the following link.

Instructions to comment on the standard:

  • Submit your comments via email to soc@wisconsinlandwater.org by midnight on Friday, September 17, 2021.
  • Keep comments specific and directly related to this technical standard.
  • You may insert your comments into the Adobe pdf document, or otherwise indicate the page or line numbers to which your comments refer. If you have general comments applicable to the entire standard, please note them as such.
  • Respond in the same order as the sections appear in the draft.

After the notice period is complete, all comments will be considered by DNR. Revisions may be made to the document and the final updated technical standard will then be made available to internal and external stakeholders.
