Post Construction Water Management

In January of 2007, the Washtenaw County Road Commission (WCRC) entered into a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with the Washtenaw County Water Resources Commissioner’s Office (WCWRC) to address design standards for WCRC projects requiring a WCWRC permit. This MOU is intended to address post construction water management for WCRC construction projects. The WCRC is also working towards incorporating and implementing Low Impact Development (LID) techniques into our design practices.

In addition, the WCRC implemented “Procedures and Regulations for Developing Public Roads”. WCRC also implemented “Procedures and Regulations for Permit Activities”. The WCRC works closely with the WCWRC to ensure that new road development is in compliance with WCWRC requirements. These documents provide the guidelines to the extent that the WCRC legally can regulate post construction water management for new development and redevelopment.
