What is in your BMP toolbox? Collaborative New Product Review Program and Applications for Stormwater Management Programs
Abstract:This paper identifies some of the industry technology transfer clearinghouses and also features two particular programs – the IUPUI NPR/IPV program and the New Jersey Corporation for Advanced Technology (NJCAT) Program. Understanding the role that these organizations fulfill and utilizing the “lessons learned” from their investigations will help to refine the storm water BMP tool box for many public works agencies whose program and watershed resources are limited. Access to such resources will guide decisions, help formalize environmental programs and improve the effectiveness of storm water asset management, given the rapidly increasing inventory of new and retrofitted stormwater BMPs. A case study is also presented to illustrate how published performance data was utilized by DC Water for a manufactured stormwater BMP application at the National Arboretum in Washington D.C.
