Question

What actions is the Department of the Navy taking to address storm water management on its facilities?

Answer

The Department issued a Low Impact Development policy in 2007 requiring full compliance by 2011. Also, DoD issued a policy in 2010 to implement the stormwater management requirements of the Energy Independence and Security Act (EISA) section 438. These policies require virtually the same thing – no net increase in stormwater runoff volume through future development and re-development projects. The Department has incorporated these policy requirements into all construction project design requirement documents and added a LID/EISA 438 data module for these construction projects. This module is used by program managers to ensure and document compliance with these stormwater management requirements. The Department continues to evaluate performance and incorporate lessons learned to ensure future projects meet and exceed stormwater management goals.
