ASCE will conduct a public comment period on three ASCE/EWRI Standard Guidelines.

Discussions will center on design of storm water impoundments, installation of storm water impoundments, and operation and maintenance of storm water impoundments. The public comment period will be held from April 6 to May 21.

These three standard guidelines intend to present design guidance for storm water impoundments and put a focus on local and regional impoundments to manage, treat, and/or attenuate storm water runoff. The standards aim at reducing the impact of storm water on downstream areas due to land-use changes from water discharge and water quality perspectives.

Accessing the public comment system will require using or creating an ASCE web user account. For additional questions contact James Neckel, ASCE’s codes and standards coordinator.
