Abstract

The purpose of this project was to evaluate available BMPs and ultimately design a system which reduced both sediment and nutrients in stormwater and nonpoint source pollution. Emphasis was placed on the design process which included the assessment of existing conditions, preliminary design development, detailed design, and the preparation of construction drawings and specifications. A stormwater conveyance model was developed to aid in the final design of an infiltration basin with presedimentation forebay which addressed stormwater quality issues determined from actual stormwater samples.
