Storm Water Pollution, Erosion & Sediment Control Products Demonstration & Training Center

Centrally located Urbana-Champaign is easily accessible from all parts of Illinois through major highways. University of Illinois is ideal for establishing this center immediately and with future expansion potential. Furthermore, the proximity of the proposed site to Advanced Transportation Research and Engineering Laboratory (ATREL) provides a unique opportunity to promote interaction and joint training at reduced costs. For example, if research is required to access interactions between SWM BMPs and pavement practices this proximity would allow for collaboration. Additionally, the University of Illinois is partnering with the Construction Engineering Research Laboratory (CERL) of the US Department of Army for developing the training center.
