This project quantified the water quality of stormwater runoff from various surface types and used this information to design cost efficient Best Management Practices (BMPs) with high contaminant removal rates. On the WPI campus, the grass areas, access roads, and walkways had higher concentrations of contaminants than parking lots, main roads, and roofs. By targeting these surfaces, BMPs were designed with a contaminant removal rate of approximately 50% of a full downstream design but at 33% of the cost.
