   At 36 Pa.B. 1797 (April 15, 2006), the Department of Environmental Protection (Department) published a notice of availability for draft technical guidance document #363-0300-002: Pennsylvania Stormwater Best Management Practices Manual (Draft Manual). The Department will hold four public meetings concerning the Draft Manual. At these meetings, the Department will also provide a general overview of a proposed draft Stormwater Management Model Ordinance (Draft Ordinance), which it expects to publish for public comment in the Pennsylvania Bulletin in the near future. These meetings will be information sessions to inform the public about the Draft Manual and Draft Ordinance and how the documents relate to one another to promote coordinated stormwater management. These public meetings will not be public hearings nor will they provide the public with opportunities to provide testimony. The public meetings are scheduled as follows:

   The purpose of the Draft Manual is to establish recommended guidance for stormwater management utilizing best management practices in this Commonwealth. Due to the increased need to improve water quality and protect water resources through improved stormwater runoff management, the Draft Manual will provide the planning concepts and design standards to guide local and state governments, planners, land developers, contractors and others involved with planning, designing, reviewing, approving and constructing land development projects in meeting those needs. The Department is accepting comments on the Draft Manual until June 14, 2006. See 36 Pa.B. 1797.
