The 2016 Stormwater Management Manual has been compiled by the City of Franklin to assist planners, developers, contractors and various businesses and industries in complying with the guidelines set forth by the NPDES Phase II Rule. This manual is designed to support the stormwater management language set forth within the Ordinance by way of providing specific guidance for selection of Best Management Practices (BMPs) and elaborating on various practices. This manual will assist the City of Franklin in stormwater pollution prevention and water quality protection through impact-reducing site design, BMP selection, construction management, post-construction management, and good housekeeping measures.
