- Urban Stormwater BMP Performance Monitoring
Developed by the Office of Science and Technology. This manual provides targeted practical assistance in conducting water quality monitoring and reporting data that are useful for assessing effectiveness of stormwater best management practices (BMPs). It was developed by integrating experience gleaned from field monitoring activities conducted by members of the ASCE Urban Water Resources Research Council and through the development of the ASCE/EPA National Stormwater BMP Database.
This document helps achieve stormwater BMP monitoring project goals through collection of more useful and representative rainfall, flow and water quality information .
Provides a recommended set of protocols and standards for collecting, storing, analyzing, and reporting BMP monitoring data. It provides insight into and guidance for strategies, approaches, and techniques that are appropriate and useful for monitoring BMPs (EPA-821-B-02-001).
