WATER RESOURCES RESEARCH GRANT PROPOSAL

Project ID: 2003DE29B

Title: Field Measurements of Non-Point Source Pollutant Removal Efficiencies of Stormwater BMPs at the UD Experimental Watershed

Project Type: Research

Focus Categories: Surface Water, Non Point Pollution, Sediments

Keywords: stormwater ponds, retrofitting, best management practice, TMDL

Start Date: 06/01/2003

End Date: 02/28/2004

Federal Funds: $ 1500.00

Matching Funds: $3000.00

Congressional District: At large

Principal Investigator: Wollaston, Martin

Abstract: Stormwater pond retrofitting is a candidate watershed restoration technique in the Christina Basin of northern Delaware and Southeastern Pennsylvania. The two states are working together to implement a watershed restoration strategy in accordance with Total Maximum Daily Loads that may be imposed under the Clean Water Act. Little field data exists that documents the pollutant removal efficiency of this best management practice. The research is designed to gather field data on the pollutant removal efficiency of retrofitted stormwater ponds and wetlands that have been installed on-campus in the University of Delaware Experimental Watershed.
