I worked with the Indiana DNR Division of Soil for 15 years and this was the first book that we used for erosion control practice applications and planning. It is a very good book that is fairly well illustrated. Each practice has a application code number (ie: practice 3.01) that can be used to correspond to the application location on your planning map. This coding makes placing practice locations on the map very easy and is easy to follow. This is still the practice book I use for "Rule 5" plans today.
BUT... The DNR Division of Soil has been dissolved ( 2005). Erosion Control has been returned to the full control of IDEM. (Division of Soil was the field team for IDEM to inspect construction sites and do plan reviews. IDEM collected the fees and took violators to court).
SO... there is a new book from IDEM that has more practices, many more pages and has much better illustrations. It is available on-line. The one item that I greatly miss is the practice codes are missing. I find that I have a much harder time locating practices in the new book and have to make up codes for plan maps or use wordy details on the maps to descibe practices.
Here is the link to the new IDEM book or do a google search for "IDEM storm water quality manual".
Enjoy... Mark from NE Indiana
