Optimal Design of Stormwater Basins with Bio-Sorption Activated Media (BAM) in Karst Environments - Phase II: Field Testing of BMPs

Using existing Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) facilities, the objectives of this project are to: (1) design two new Bio-Sorption Activated Media (BAM)-based treatment alternatives for testing the best management practices BMPs) with the two stormwater basins under different hydrogeological conditions, (2) construct and operate BAM-based treatment systems within the two existing stormwater basins, (3) assess the cost-effectiveness of different BAM-based treatment systems for removal of nitrogen over a long term period through a life cycle assessment based on the short-term operational data, and (4) develop removal efficiency curves for BAM-based treatment systems.
