NCHRP 25-25/Task 119 [Final]

Enhancing the International Stormwater BMP Database to Serve as a Highway Specific BMP Database
[ NCHRP 25-25 (Research for the AASHTO Committee on Environment and Sustainability) ]

  Project Data
Funds: $80,000
Research Agency: The Water Research Foundation/Geosyntec
Principal Investigator: Marc Leisenring
Effective Date: 12/3/2018
Completion Date: 12/30/2019

State departments of transportation (state DOTs) are faced with increasing stormwater treatment demands, with tightening treatment criteria and additional pollutant targets. To meet these requirements, DOTs need ready access to reliable information about stormwater treatment Best Management Practices (BMPs) in order to choose effective solutions appropriate for project specific conditions. The International Stormwater Best Management Practices Database (BMPDB) is a repository of BMP field studies, performance summaries, and monitoring guidance. The  State DOT Portal is a web tool that provides streamlined access to BMPDB study data and performance statistics that are relevant to state DOTs and other transportation agencies. 

The State DOT Portal may be accessed at: https://dot.bmpdatabase.org

The related project NCHRP 25-25/Task 120 developed information on how to access and use the Portal along with an analysis of data of interest to state DOTs. Access the final report and presentation slides summarizing the project HERE.
