    • Description:
      Stormwater management regulations and practices developed by environmental management agencies address the environmental problem of sediments and other pollutants entering surface waters but do not address public health issues, such as preventing habitat production for disease-carrying mosquitoes and other vectors.

      Certain stormwater management structures designed to reduce sediment and other pollutant loads in runoff (e.g., dry detention basins, retention ponds, media filtration devices, below-ground devices) frequently hold standing water for more than 3 days, creating potential mosquito breeding habitats. This in turn leads to the potential for mosquito-borne diseases such as West Nile virus and St. Louis encephalitis.

      Even those stormwater facilities that are properly designed and constructed to minimize mosquito breeding habitat may collect standing water if they are not maintained properly, thus creating the potential for mosquito breeding.
