This paper presents a methodology used to conduct a laboratory test of a manufactured stormwater filter. In the absence of any published protocols for filters the methodology was developed based on protocols for hydrodynamic separators, combined with scientifically defendable and practical procedures. The reasoning behind the protocol is discussed. The result was data that was relatively easy to generate, thus allowing different filters to be tested and compared on a reasonable basis. The filter was tested for removal performance and maintenance lifetime. Recognizing that a laboratory test will only be able to approximate actual installed performance, its main value lies in simplifying the end user's task of comparing technologies and this should be considered in the test protocol.
