    My presentation will be on the Bay Area Stormwater Management Agencies Association’s Post-Construction Manual for Provision E.12 compliance. It will cover many aspects of the implementation of bioretention as mandated by the Permit.

     

    The Post-Construction Manual is available from BASMAA and may be downloaded at http://www.basmaa.org/BoardandCommittees/PhaseII.aspx (scroll down to “Projects and Programs”).
