Stormwater Best Management Practices Technology Demonstration Workshop
(09:00 AM - 02:00 PM)

This workshop provides a general overview of the present and future standards of stormwater management. UNHSC research addresses the overall performance and effectiveness of a variety of stormwater Best Management Practices (BMPs) to control water quantity and treat water quality. To date the UNHSC has researched over 24 different BMPs ranging from conventional ponds to manufactured subsurface filters to broad array of Low Impact Development (or Green Infrastructure) practices.

 

In August of 2004, the UNHSC field research facility came online. This field research facility serves as both a site for testing stormwater treatment processes as well as for technology demonstrations. The testing results and technology demonstrations are meant to assist in the planning, design, and implementation of stormwater management strategies. Topics covered include water quantity control (peak flow reduction, system lag time, and potential for infiltration), water quality treatment effectiveness (sediment, nutrients, metals, hydrocarbons, and/or microorganisms), as well as brief overviews of emergent topics such as system maintenance, thermal buffering, and cold climate related issues.
