Planners and implementers are always looking for new ways to earn credit towards reducing nutrient and sediment loads. This webinar looks at two new approaches that have been recently approved by the Chesapeake Bay Program Partnership.
The Impervious Cover Disconnections to Amended Soils BMP Expert Panel was convened in 2015 to assess the nutrient and sediment reductions that can be achieved by directing or otherwise spreading stormwater from impervious cover of existing development (not new or re-development) to an acceptable area of pervious cover where it may be effectively stored and infiltrated into the soil.
Continuous Monitoring and Adaptive Control (CMAC) technologies are a BMP enhancement to stormwater facilities that directly monitor performance and make automated and predictive control decisions to actively manage stormwater storage and flows.
