The Development BMP Online Handbook is an interactive online reference that addresses selection and implementation of BMPs to eliminate or to reduce the discharge of pollutants and control or reduce impacts to the hydrologic cycle associated with development and redevelopment activities. For a comprehensive understanding of stormwater pollution control throughout the life cycle of the project, it is recommended that you obtain and become familiar with all four of CASQA’s BMP handbooks.

The printed 2003 version of the New Development & Redevelopment BMP Handbook became obsolete in 2021 when the handbook was significantly updated and became an online subscription product.

Purchasing or renewing a subscription to the Development BMP Online Handbook assures that you are getting the latest version of the handbook (June 2021). CASQA plans to take full advantage of the online format to issue more frequent updates; likely at least annually.
