TCBMP Maintenance Verification

Every year, cities verify that the stormwater filtration systems on commercial and residential properties are being properly maintained through their TCBMP maintenance verification process.

Annual TCBMP Maintenance Verification forms are mailed out to property managers, who must complete the forms and return by the given deadline, verifying that regular maintenance of their stormwater BMPs has taken place.

Though the verification process is essentially the same, each city does things a bit differently. Forms look different and deadlines vary. The most important thing is that you are having your stormwater BMPs serviced on a regular basis so that they are functioning properly.

Without BMP maintenance, your property is not compliant with city stormwater requirements.

Stormwater Compliance Checklist

Steps to help you create and implement a customized BMP Maintenance Program to ensure your property’s stormwater system is compliant with city requirements.


Review your property and make sure your stormwater BMPs have been regularly serviced in the last year.

Check your records. Some cities will want the dates and details of service performed in the last year. Frequency of service depends on the type of BMP, but should be enough to keep the BMP functioning properly. Filter media should be replaced as necessary. If service hasn't taken place, now is the time to schedule.


Identify any problems and schedule any necessary repairs or replacements as soon as possible.

Holding off on that outstanding repair? Now is the time to proceed. City inspectors visit properties during the dry season and will note any damages or problems on a Deficiency Notice.


Complete and return your BMP Maintenance Verification form to the city by the noted deadline.

If you're handling your paperwork yourself, be sure to stick to that deadline on the form.
