The material presented in this manual details the importance of implementing Best Management Practices (BMPs) for the overall improvement of water quality associated with urban stormwater runoff and discharge.

Urban area stormwater runoff is considered by many a major source of pollution to our ecosystem. If left uncontrolled, it has an adverse and sometimes irreversible effect on the water quality of our wetlands, rivers, lakes, estuaries and the natural habitat associated with these receiving areas. In recent years, water management activities have progressed exponentially and are now considered a multiple objective program that manages water supply and conservation and the preservation of surface water and other natural ecological systems.

The information presented in this course material encompasses several aspects of adopting Best Management Practices (BMPs) in reference to stormwater runoff pollution in Urban areas. It details the origin and causes of non-point source pollution and develops methodologies for effective control practices to enhance the improvement of water quality byproduct in stormwater discharge.

Course Objectives:

  • Urban area stormwater management overview
  • Pollutant sources in urban stormwater runoff
  • Constituents of pollutants in urban stormwater runoff
  • Methods of pollutant quantification
  • Feasibility screening for urban BMP selection
  • Structural / Non structural BMP’s
  • BMP implementation alternatives
