Stormwater BMP Design Guide

Stormwater BMP Design Guide

Best Management Practices can be designed to meet a wide range of goals and objectives. These can range from a single parameter approach such as flood control or pollutant removal, which is typical in older developed watersheds, to multiple parameter ecological sustainability of receiving systems, which is more readily applied to developing watersheds. These management goals will determine the requirement for proper design and the mix of ecological and engineering principles that must be considered. These will typically include hydrology and inflow hydraulics, soil characteristics/infiltration rates, site-specific water quality and location, as well as the condition of the receiving waters.

This course provides guidance on the selection and design of stormwater management Best Management Practices (BMPs). It reviews general considerations associated with the selection and design of BMPs including wet weather flow impacts on receiving waters, regulations, BMP design concepts and guidance, and BMP types and selection.
