Technical Bulletin No 2: Stormwater Design in the Coastal Plain

This final draft was produced to customize and adapt stormwater design guidance for the demanding conditions of the coastal plain of Delaware, Maryland and Virginia, and has been reviewed by a wide range of Tidewater engineers and planners.

Most stormwater practices were originally developed in the Piedmont physiographic region and have not been adapted for much different conditions in the coastal plain. Consequently, much of the available stormwater design guidance is strongly oriented toward the rolling terrain of the Piedmont with its defined headwater streams, minimal shallow groundwater flow, low wetland density, and well drained soils.
