Drainage Design Bureau

The vision of the Drainage Bureau is to provide the design of safe, efficient, economical, and environmentally sensitive drainage systems that collect and convey surface water runoff within and through the transportation system.

NMDOT is a permitee in the EPA’s Municipal Separate Storm Sewer System (MS4) program. The Drainage Bureau is responsible for offering technical assistance for permit compliance in U.S. Census Bureau determined Urbanized Areas throughout the state. This program is designed to reduce pollutants (including trash, sediments, and contaminants) carried by stormwater runoff to our natural waterways. As part of this program an Illicit Discharge Information and Reporting Form (available through the link on the right) was developed. Also as part of this program NMDOT incorporates Green Infrastructure (GI) and Low Impact Development (LID) into its designs when feasible.
