Storm Water BMP Tool Implementation Testing

Gresham, Smith, and Partners (GS&P) completed the ORIL 2015-7 research project for the ORIL Research Initiative for Locals (ORIL) in September 2015. One of the primary deliverables from the research was a storm water best management practice (BMP) selection tool (Tool) targeted for use by Locals. The Tool's performance was tested by the Technical Advisory Committee and GS&P for quality conformance. This new project will conduct a "pilot test" with up to three Local entities to confirm the ease of use of the tool and usefulness of the outputs as applied to actual projects over several months. The goals of this project include providing training on use of the tool to individuals at each of the selected pilot groups, providing feedback to ORIL and providing information to guide potential future users and promotion of the BMP Selection Tool. The objective of this project will be to gather data on the tool to gain an understanding of the use of the tool and to determine the next steps for possible statewide implementation of the tool.
