Drainage Criteria Manual Revisions

The City of Lincoln, in coordination with the Lower Platte South Natural Resources District, is working on revising the Drainage Criteria Manual to make updates, clarifications and readability improvements. It is planned to be produced as a digital document with a common and consistent format. The Drainage Criteria Manual provides guidelines and criteria primarily for Stormwater standards, detention/retention facilities, open channels, closed drainage systems, Stormwater best management practices, erosion and sediment control and flood design criteria.
