Abstract

Pollutants carried in stormwater runoff pose a threat to the water quality of receiving water bodies. This project addressed these concerns at WPI through the design of a stormwater best management practice (BMP) and creation of a stormwater management strategy. Stormwater BMP’s were analyzed for their effectiveness in pollutant removal, and a tree box filter was ultimately designed. The stormwater management strategy would address the six minimum control measures as defined by the EPA to improve stormwater management at WPI.
