Evaluate Effectiveness of Storm Ponds and Wetlands for Water Quality

Status:  Active
Project Start Date:  No Date


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.
