Selection of Stormwater BMPs to Maximize Removal of Target Pollutants

Harvey H Harper, PhD, PE


This workshop is designed to be an interactive forum for professionals responsible for selecting, reviewing, designing, and evaluating stormwater BMPs to remove target pollutants. The workshop will begin with a discussion of common constituents in stormwater runoff and optimum removal processes for each constituent. A detailed evaluation of common and innovative BMPs will be provided which includes the physical characteristics, removal processes and factors impacting pollutant removal, typical pollutants removed, methods to estimate BMP effectiveness, and most appropriate applications. BMP topics include infiltration BMPs, wet detention, dry detention, gross pollutant separators, street sweeping, alum treatment, LID, BMP selection summary and costs, BMPs in series, and common mistakes in BMP selection. The presentation will rely heavily on research projects which demonstrate BMP efficiency, factors impacting BMP effectiveness, improper BMP selection, design errors and recommendations, and maintenance concerns.
