Considerations for the implementation and operation of stormwater control measure (SCM) performance monitoring systems
Kertesz, R., Dan Murray, AND W. D. SHUSTER. Considerations for the implementation and operation of stormwater control measure (SCM) performance monitoring systems. In Proceedings, Novatech 2013, LyonF, June 23 - 27, 2013. GRAIE, Lyon, France, 1-9, (2013).
This presentation has an impact on the design and build process of green infrastructure, resulting in better collaboration between interested parties and increasing the ease of BMP installation and monitoring in the future.
Green infrastructure (GI) studies are needed to make informed decisions about whether or not to select GI technologies over traditional urban drainage control methods and to assist in the timing of effective maintenance. Two permeable pavement infiltration stormwater control measures (SCM) in Cincinnati, OH, USA, were instrumented with sensing technologies to monitor water fluxes and thereby better understand stormwater control measure performance. Findings cover preferential drainage, multidisciplinary cooperation from design through to operation, topographic analysis, details on installation of sensor technology, and complications with sensor operation. Research is ongoing to better integrate monitoring technology with the construction process and actual SCM operations.
