Engineering Details

The City of Batavia has specific details for storm sewer, water, sanitary sewer and street improvements, erosion control and standard specifications. All details and specifications shall be on 24 inches by 36 inches sheets with a 3 inches high by 6 inches wide clear body near the Title Block, preferably at the bottom right corner of each page for a City of Batavia Approval Stamp.


The standard specifications must be included in each construction or improvement plan set fully intact with the City of Batavia border. The specifications sheet includes information on construction and installation aspects of the projects. Any specification not being utilized should have an 'X' placed over it.

Erosion Control

For erosion control the City of Batavia requires utilization of the most current detail from the Illinois Urban Manual except the inlet filter basket where the City requires the FlexStorm Detail be used (Standard No. 4.13 and 4.14). The details from the Urban Manual can be found online.

Below is a full list and PDF copy of the current City of Batavia details for storm sewer, water, sanitary sewer, streets and erosion control that are to be inserted into all construction and improvements plans when needed. These details govern over all other details.
