The following guidelines are intended for use by property owners and site developers to assist with meeting the Town of Milford’s Stormwater requirements when there will be total site disturbance of less than 5000 square feet. Stormwater management is required by the Town to comply with the mandates of the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to minimize the impacts of site-generated stormwater on the Town’s stormwater system and surface waters. Construction-related changes to on-site drainage systems and patterns, regardless of size, can result in flooding and degradation of water quality.
Design guidance documents to help planners, engineers, designers and other practitioners create high quality streets and public spaces. Includes guidance on streetscape, cycle infrastructure and accessible bus stops.
The SCI has produced a detailed design guide for stainless steel. This can be accessed from the Online Information Centre for Stainless Steel in Construction. This website can be used to download a wide range of resources relating to construction in stainless steel
During construction soil will likely be disturbed on-site which often leads to erosion and runoff. Additionally, trucks and equipment running over the disturbed soil will carry soil from the site. Results from this construction activity can lead to sediment-laden runoff which clogs catch basins, culverts, roadside ditches, and stormwater pipes.
The guides and tutorials listed here are intended to provide methods and instructions to guide you in making your content accessible and Section 508 compliant.
If stormwater must leave the site, the goal should be that the quantity leaving the site be equal to or less than what would be generated by an equivalent undeveloped property. The quality must be such that it cannot degrade receiving waters or create problems at off-site facilities.
However, Best Management Practices should be utilized to address runoff from a design storm. A reasonable design storm for engineering of projects with less than 5000 SF of total site disturbance is the 10 year, 24 hour storm. This is a storm that lasts for approximately 24 hours and whose intensity would be anticipated to occur only once in ten years (although with spring thaw and high intensity storms seen more often in recent year equivalent runoff occurs more often than once in 10 years).
