Research for the AASHTO Standing Committee on the Environment. Task 92. Transferability of Post-Construction Stormwater Quality BMP Effectiveness Studies

The objectives of this research are to: (1) determine the conditions under which the results of best management practices (BMP) effectiveness studies can be accurately transferred from one geographic area to another, (2) determine a standardized study design as well as standardized protocol for the collection of data so that evaluation study findings are comparable nationally, and (3) investigate the feasibility of establishing a central repository for post-construction stormwater quality research studies to facilitate the exchange of BMP effectiveness information. Objectives 1 and 2 will require: (a) identifying the elements of BMP evaluation protocols and of BMP effectiveness that are affected by geographically related conditions and state regulatory frameworks, (b) determining the sensitivity of those elements to changes in conditions, and (c) developing a method to assess BMP effectiveness evaluation studies and apply the results to another location with different conditions (including determination when results should not be used elsewhere).
