Post-construction stormwater management is typically accomplished through stormwater Best Management Practices (BMPs)
. These BMPs include constructed stormwater infiltration systems, bio-retention systems, stormwater detention facilities, or various manufactured systems.
All types of BMPs are designed to mitigate the effects of development by reducing runoff volume and rates while promoting removal of pollutants and improving runoff quality.
These BMPs are critical in achieving greater water quality in accordance with the City of Falls Church Stormwater Management Ordinance and Municipal Separate Storm Sewer System (MS4) Stormwater Permit.
