June 5, 2014: Public comments are due on the DNR’s draft guidance on storm drain inlet protection for construction sites. The intent of the update is to include additional inlet protection devices that are variations of the existing Type D inlet devices and were developed by members of the Green Tier/ Clean Waters Environmental Results Program Charter (GTCWI). These devises utilize different filtering fabrics than the Type D device, and allow for capture of smaller diameter soil particles. Both of the additional devices have recently been used on several road construction projects within the City of Madison.
