Stormwater Management Plan Template (MS Word): This Stormwater Management Plan Template (SWMP Template) was developed through a combined effort of the Oregon Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ), the University of Oregon, the Oregon State Extension Sea Grant Program, the City of Cottage Grove, the City of Creswell, and the City of Eugene. In addition to managing stormwater for flood protection, this SWMP Template incorporates water quality measures to address Total Maximum Daily Load (TMDL) pollutants, especially temperature, bacteria and mercury.

The intended audience is cities with populations between 10,000 and 50,000, not covered by a MS4 permit forStorm Water Phase II Regulations (Append E).  Non-MS4 Phase II cities with populations fewer than 10,000 are intended to adopt applicable portions of the template which apply to their stormwater goals.

Water Quality Model Code & Guidebook: This guidebook integrates  many of the “smart development” inspired code recommendations of the TGM project with recommended code language to achieve water quality objectives.  This publication is a companion to the Model Development Code and Users Guide for Small Cities.

Model Development Code for Small Cities: The Model Development Code for Small Cities, 3rd Edition, is a TGM program publication. It is a useful tool for smaller communities around the state that wish to update their development codes in a way that promotes efficient land use and transportation planning. The Model Development Code for Small Cities uses planning techniques and best practices to advance TGM principles by addressing all relevant modes of travel (with special attention to walking, bicycling, and transit), including mixed uses, efficient use of land, vibrant downtowns, and improving the connectivity of the street network.

Communities can use the Model Development Code for Small Cities in its entirety or in part. It is a user-friendly document that is free to download and use. It is available as a PDF and in Microsoft Word. Many of the graphics are editable so that a community may adjust graphic labels to fit their needs. 

Low Impact Development: A Practical Guide to Implement Effective Practices for Watershed Health (3 files) DRAFT TEMPLATE: This guide was created for small cities with limited budgets who need practical information on implementing low impact development to meet their TMDL regulations. Written as a prescriptive stormwater management manual template, it might also be used in a voluntary fashion to identify appropriate practices and implement them in planning, design, construction, and maintenance phases.

Thank you to the City of Gresham for permission to use their Green Development Practices Manual as the basis for this document and Five Counties Salmonid Conservation Program for the contract that developed Appendix A.

DISCLAIMER: These documents are a DRAFT and while it has useful and we believe correct information, it has not been peer reviewed or received a technical advisory committee process. USE AT YOUR OWN RISK.

Low Impact Development: A Practical Guide to Implement Effective Practices for Watershed Health (doc) This document gives an overview of LID, what's required for submittals, and how to step through the decision making process of which best management practices to use where, as well as standard details.

Appendix A (pdf): This document explains best management practices in detail. Information provided in Appendix A should be closely followed in each development phase to qualify for credit as managing stormwater.

FORM SIM (Excel): This document summarizes the decision making process that the LID Guidance above is based on, and allows the user to make calculations to size facilities to receive credit.
