The report describes an analysis methodology and presents graphs and example computations to guide planning level evaluations and design decisions on two techniques for urban runoff quality control. The control techniques addressed, recharge or infiltration devices, and wet pond detention devices, were shown to be the most consistently effective methods of pollutant reduction of any of the Best Management Practices (BMP) approaches evaluated in the recent Nationwide Urban Runoff Program study.
