SWMP -> Stormwater Management Plan

A Stormwater Management Plan (also Urban Stormwater Management Plan) is a plan that develops an integrated approach to urban stormwater quality.


EPA Victoria states that an effective stormwater management plan (SWMP) to improve urban stormwater quality must:

  • have council-wide commitment, both to the plan and its implementation
  • set priorities for the council's management of urban stormwater
  • include clearly stated strategic objectives
  • incorporate a risk-based assessment of issues and threats
  • include strategies with clear actions that address priority risks, together with measurable environmental outcomes wherever possible
  • follow the principle of continuous improvement
  • engage all stakeholders and
  • have successfully been developed using the best practice methodology.
