The Statewide Airport Stormwater Study is finished. The Florida Statewide Airport Stormwater Best Management Practice (BMP) manual was finalized in 2005. The FDEP drafted language for General Permit for airports by incorporating the BMP into new Rule 62-347 FAC with a placeholder for an FAA designed wet detention pond. The BMP has been rewritten in 2010 for consistency with the new general permit for airport airsides. A detailed training for the regulators and airport consultants was held on March 10th 2011 at University of Florida in Gainesville, to ensure that the BMP and the General Permit are used properly. Some airports may need wet detention ponds for airside stormwater management due to site specific water table and soil conditions. The FAA recommends wet detention pond design criteria with steep side slopes that presumably will not attract wild life. A grant request has been submitted to the FAA to build and test an FAA designed pond for State water quality standards. The pond construction at Naples Airport was completed in May 2014, and the post-construction monitoring for water quality and wildlife started with the FAA grant in June 2014.

Post-construction monitoring protocols were set with the stakeholders in July 2014. Monitoring is in progress.
