Stormwater Retrofitting Workshop for Virginia Stormwater Practitioners
This Technical Bulletin outlines the best current science on urban stormwater nutrient management, and is intended to help states and local governments define their baseline loads and choose the most cost effective combination of practices to
meet their local load allocations under the Chesapeake Bay TMDL.
Watershed managers are increasingly interested in isolating the land cover components of urban land use (turf cover, impervious cover and forest cover) in order to obtain better predictions about current and future runoff, pollutant export and stream quality.
In the last year there has been growing recognition about the need to expand pollution prevention activities, particularly at federal facilities.
This technical bulletin is intended to accompany the ESD to MEP spreadsheet compliance tool that was developed to simplify compliance with the 2008 MDE stormwater management regulations.
Proposed BMP pollutant removal performance method for each of the Bay states.
Stormwater management is evolving. Learn about the next generation of stormwater practices at this free workshop.
The Bay states have pioneered new techniques for retrofits to remove pollutants and improve stream health.
If retrofitting your property with a stormwater best management practice (BMP) paid dividends, would you do it?
“Bay Wise” gardeners are trimming back lawn fertilizer pollution by replacing their lawns with gardens of ferns, wild ginger and other plants native to Maryland.
