Overview
:
This practical and highly acclaimed course provides a comprehensive overview of stormwater pollutant chemistry and its applications to stormwater monitoring and BMP effectiveness. Topics include an overview of stormwater contaminant sources and characteristics, transport and fate, BMP selection and performance, current research, and emerging treatment technologies. Course sections are applicable to low impact development (LID), green stormwater infrastructure (GSI), and traditional structural best management practices (BMPs). The topics provide essential information for understanding and managing stormwater pollutants for permit compliance.
