Stormwater Management Data for Sediment Control Permits

The Maryland Department of the Environment (MDE) requires Montgomery County to document information for each stormwater best management practice (BMP) for the County’s Municipal Separate Storm Sewer System (MS4) Permit.

As such, Effective July 1, 2024, Montgomery County will collect stormwater management (SWM) data for each new sediment control permit that requires stormwater management in order to meet MDE requirements and for SWM BMP tracking purposes.
