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.
