 Stormwater BMP Testing – A Two-Pronged Strategy
Given the limitations and challenges inherent of BMP evaluations, whether done in the field or the laboratory, it’s a wonder we bother with either. However, the intent of identifying these issues is not to discourage evaluation, but to foster understanding so as to encourage BMP evaluations to be structured in a manner that yields sound results.
Are We Ready for a National Stormwater Rule?
Having worked in the field of stormwater management for almost 20 years, and seeing the conceptual and technological development of stormwater management and BMPs, it is clear we have had successes and failures. We need to learn from both, especially with USEPA’s national rulemaking activities to establish a program to reduce stormwater discharges and to make other regulatory improvements to strengthen its existing stormwater program .
What is LID? Five Principles of Low Impact Development.
The Low Impact Development (LID) approach to site development and stormwater management is rapidly becoming the required design approach in many areas of the United States. The basic principle is to use nature as a model and manage rainfall at the source.
5 Hydraulic Considerations When Choosing a Stormwater Filter Media
The removal of site-specific pollutants can be maximized with the variety of filtration media available. Understanding the hydraulics of the media you choose is a key, albeit misunderstood, factor in determining the effectiveness of the filtration system. Here are five things you should consider...

An increasing challenge that we see with our customers is balancing water quality with water quantity. Conventional design would be to use an in ground detention pond. But, if this is not an option, whether the owner does not want the aesthetics of a pond, the land needs to be used for parking, or you have a layer of clay soil that makes traditional infiltration not possible, consider using a perforated CMP manhole or an infiltration well (drywell).
