Connecting the DOTs through Collaboration in Stormwater Management

This document provides information presented and discussed at the American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials (AASHTO) National Stormwater Practioners Meeting held in June 2012, in Raleigh, North Carolina. The theme of the meeting was “Connecting the DOTs” and provided state departments of transportation (DOTs) from across the country an opportunity to learn and discuss the latest information on stormwater regulations and on how DOTs are dealing with the challenges of being a unique municipal stormwater conveyance and discharger. This white paper discusses U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) stormwater updates, National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) permitting trends and new permit activities, information about DOT audits conducted by the states or EPA, stormwater asset management programs, contemporary post-construction stormwater controls, effectively focused construction stormwater management, and using a watershed approach to stormwater management. Presentations provided during the national meeting and a recorded webinar are available for on-demand viewing at AASHTO's Center for Environmental Excellence (Center) website: http://environment.transportation.org. This White Paper contains definitions, discussion on importance to DOTs, case studies from DOTs, future implications, considerations for moving forward, and key contacts and references for each of the key topics presented at the meeting. This document highlights information for practitioners across multiple functional areas within a DOT organizational structure.
