Stormwater Pond Maintenance and Wetland Management for Phosphorus Retention

The LRRB produced the Stormwater Maintenance BMP Resource Guide in 2009 and the Decision Tree for Stormwater BMPs in 2001. Recent studies, such as Urban Stormwater Ponds can be a Source of Phosphorous, suggest that stormwater ponds may not offer the best long-term solution. This research will study stormwater ponds and determine both their cost effectiveness and long-term effectiveness as a best management practice.
