Catch Basin Inserts for Ohio Roadways

The goal of this research is to identify options for expanding Ohio Department of Transportation's (ODOT's) suite of approved post construction best management practices (BMPs) to meet National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) Construction General Permit (OHC000004) requirements by considering BMPs that are inserted into catch basins. The research should determine if any commercially available catch basin inserts would provide sufficient treatment performance to be accepted as a post construction BMP to treat water quality as discussed in ODOT's Location and Design Manual, Volume 2, Section 1115. ODOT would also like to assess the level of effort required to maintain the catch basin inserts. If catch basin inserts are identified that meet treatment standards and are acceptable from a maintenance perspective, ODOT would like to use this research to propose acceptance from OEPA of the inserts as an approved post construction BMP for transportation projects. The research will also be used to inform development of ODOT-specific acceptance specifications and maintenance procedures.
