The Urban Water Resources Research Council of the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE) entered into a cooperative agreement with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (USEPA) to develop a scientifically-based approach and management tool for the information needed to evaluate the effectiveness of urban stormwater runoff BMPs nationwide. The long-term goal of the project is to promote technical design improvements for BMPs and to better match their selection and design to the local stormwater problems being addressed.
" ... in cooperation with Office of Water, U.S. Environmental Protection Agency." "June 1999."
The National Stormwater BMP Database helps engineers, researchers and planners identify the types of data that should be collected when evaluating performance of BMPs based on a consistent and nationaly established set of data protocols.
