|PROJECT||2021 Statewide Airport Stormwater Study Phase 1|
|LOCATION||Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT)|
The project focused on updating the FDOT Statewide Airport Stormwater Best Management Practices Manual which was published in March 2023. This manual is referenced in Section 9.5.4 in the draft of the Applicant’s Handbook, Volume 1 for the new version of rule 62-330 Florida Administrative Code (FAC) mandated by the Clean Waterways Act, Chapter 2020-150 Laws of Florida. The project also included re-establishing the stakeholder committee (FDOT, FDEP, Southwest, South, and St. John’s River Water Management Districts, FAA) from the previous Statewide Airport Stormwater Study from 2013 to assure regulatory acceptance and guide the program to meet the needs of environmental protection and airport safety, conducting an awareness campaign targeted to airports and consultants to highlight what is already available, what is in progress, and at the conclusion of the project, to present the full set of water management options.
