Stormwater best management practices (BMPs) remove contaminants that would otherwise enter a receiving water body, but the precise removal efficiency of different BMP designs is unknown. Two Massachusetts Department of Conservation and Recreation (DCR) BMPs were studied to determine their effectiveness in contaminant removal. A field sampling program was developed, laboratory analyses were performed on stormwater samples, and these results were utilized to create models of the basins. An ideal design approach was developed for a new DCR BMP.
