TRS: Infiltration Basins: Standards and Procedures to Ensure Performance

Status:  Complete
Report Date:  02/20/2018


This Transportation Research Synthesis presents findings from a literature search for relevant practices of other state agencies for the planning, design and construction of infiltration basins along with guidance from national organizations. It also investigated nongovernmental and international sources and research. There is a significant amount of literature on this subject. Standards and procedures appear to be clear and accepted, but essential preconstruction evaluations and procedures are not always followed. A survey of selected state departments of transportation sought further information concerning standards and procedures that agencies employ to construct effective infiltration basins, as well as their solutions to common challenges that arise in infiltration basin construction. The results of the survey follow the findings of the literature search.
