Types of Stormwater Control Measures
- Bioretention basin (or rain garden)
- A bioretention basin, or rain garden is a hole filled with native plantings and special soil mix. It collects and slows stormwater runoff and removes pollutants.
- Pervious Pavement
- Permeable pavement allows stormwater runoff to drain through the pavement into the soil below.
- Wet Retention Ponds
- Wet retention ponds can consist of a combination of a permanent deep water pool and a shallow marsh. These ponds allow pollutants to settle out of the water, encourage natural microbial activity that cleans the water, and reduces the overall amount of stormwater runoff.
- Dry Detention Ponds
- Dry detention ponds temporarily store and slowly release stormwater runoff, and prevent downstream flooding. Sediment (soil), nutrients, heavy metals, and other pollutants settle out in the pond.
- Proprietary Devices or Water Quality Units
- Water quality units filter pollutants out of stormwater runoff and release the treated water to the drainage system. The structures have limited pollutant storage and require frequent maintenance.
- Grassy Swale
- Grassy swales reduce and slow down the flow of stormwater runoff as well as filter out some pollutants.
Stormwater Control Measures (SCMs) reduce the amount of polluted stormwater that enter our creeks and streams.
Maintaining Your Stormwater Control Measure
Property owners are responsible for inspecting and maintaining SCMs on their property.
Inspections are required at least annually and maintenance is required as needed. A maintenance and inspection document for your SCM is included with your property deed. These documents are available through the Metro Nashville Register of Deeds.
More information including the location, type, and, in some cases, maintenance information for your SCM can be found on the Metro Planning Parcel Viewer. For instructions on how to use the Parcel Viewer, download our “How to Find Your SCMs” guide.
