Efficient, Effective, Innovative BMPs (May 2018)

This webinar discussed innovative best management practices for state DOT stormwater programs. The webinar covers innovative linear BMPs that fit well in transportation corridors, the importance of infiltration and current research to support use of roadway embankments as a BMP, winter storm management BMPs and technologies, measuring winter storm BMP performance, and addressing total maximum daily load and regulatory issues. The webinar also addresses open graded friction course (OGFC) as a BMP and performance and uses of OGFC.

Stormwater Program Organizational Structure (March 2016)

To keep up with ever-increasing state and federal regulations on stormwater management, state departments of transportation (DOTs) are shaking up their stormwater management programs to make them more effective at curbing pollutants in stormwater runoff. This was the topic of a March 17 web forum held by the American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials.

Stormwater and DOT Construction Projects (January 2016)

A web forum was held for Departments of Transportation (DOT) stormwater practitioners to discuss the lessons learned, and process improvements for temporary construction BMP practices and administrative processes regarding DOT construction projects. This was the second of three planned web forums on topics that are relevant to the implementation of DOT NPDES Programs.

Post Construction BMP Selection – Runoff Management to Meet Quantitative Pollution Limits (June 2012)

This webinar emphasizes the experience that DOTs have gained regarding the design, operation and maintenance of BMPs to meet increasingly more stringent and pollutant specific permit requirements. The webinar highlights the increasing permitting requirements, the availability and use of several NCHRP reports intended to assist DOTs in the selection and design of BMPs to meet water quality goals for new projects, as well as retrofits and actual DOT experiences and methods for meeting permit requirements.
