A Methodology and Evaluation Tool for Comparing Post-construction Storm Water Best Management Practises

Structural post-construction storm water Best Management Practices (BMP) are needed to address the pollutant load and increased volume of urban runoff. There are many management practices to choose from, and many factors to consider, in the selection of a BMP.  This proposed BMP selection tool attempts to provide information concerning the technical, environmental, social, and economic aspects of each BMP so that the most appropriate BMP can be implemented. The tool is applied to two test cases to demonstrate its use. Ideally, this selection tool will provide a common tool for stakeholders to use in their discussion about the selection of the most appropriate BMP.
