This project produced findings and recommendations that can be used by naval installations as lessons learned for complying with municipal separate storm sewer system MS4 regulatory requirements. An evaluation of business practices that currently MS4 permitted naval installations use performed. comply with municipal separate storm sewer system MS4 regulatory requirements. The purpose of this project is to provide naval installations not yet permitted with numerous methods employed to achieve compliance with MS4 permits. Technologies and methodologies were compiled into a small database, and existing templates were uploaded onto the Navy Environmental Management System EMS Web. With the current budget constraints, the most viable option would be a combination of EMS Web, generic spreadsheet software or penpaper in an organized manner. In the long-term, a comprehensive electronic methodology is recommended to keep data organized, be more efficient and to keep up with regulations. Commercial off-the-shelf technologies exist but pose security risks because they are web-based applications. The Marine Corps has access to e-SWPPP, which is a web-based application that integrates GIS with MS4 permitting. e-SWPPP resides on the CITRIX server but is currently not available to the Navy. The application seems promising for Navy use, and the feasibility and viability of using it is worth exploring.
