Updated Guidelines for Stormwater Impoundments Published
May 11, 2017

The American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE) has recently announced that Standard Guidelines for the Design, Installation, and Operation and Maintenance of Stormwater Impoundments, Standards ANSI/ASCE/EWRI 62-16, 63-16, and 64-16, is the most up-to-date reference on the impoundment and naturally occurring treatment of stormwater.

Gathered into a single volume, these new standards focus on local and regional impoundments that manage, treat, and attenuate stormwater runoff, thus reducing the impact of stormwater on downstream areas.

ANSI/ASCE/EWRI 62-16 covers such topics as types of systems, regulations and permits, design requirements, safety, inflow hydrology, hydraulic design, routing, and water quality. ANSI/ASCE/EWRI 63-16 discusses subjects such as contract documents, site investigation, installation, and inspection. ANSI/ASCE/EWRI 64-16 focuses on operation and maintenance of stormwater impoundments, including O&M plans, water quality, periodic inspection, and maintenance.

Airport, road, and other transportation systems engineers, planners, and owners considering stormwater impoundment solutions will find these new standards to be a valuable resource.
