The New Hampshire Department of Transportation’s award-winning work managing construction stormwater to protect two water bodies adjacent to Interstate 93 has been a successful demonstration of innovative techniques under real-world…
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.
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.
This webinar addresses how water quality is affecting the project delivery process, describes post-construction treatment best management practices, and discusses green infrastructure and low impact development implementation for highways.
This webinar addressed the MS4 Audit.
A facility to help practitioners test the effectiveness of stormwater treatment technologies is being developed by the Oregon Department of Transportation. The Stormwater Technology Testing Center (STTC), under construction at…
This meeting brought experts together to share best practices, issues, and opportunities in an effort to continue improving DOT stormwater programs, understand compliance with water quality regulations, and incorporate solutions in day-to-day practices.
This webinar provides information presented and discussed at the AASHTO National Stormwater meeting. The presentations provide support for DOTs facing new and more complex state and federal regulation to reduce pollution in stormwater discharges.
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.
This webinar discusses proven strategies to achieve better environmental performance for DOTs facing increasing challenges from stormwater-focused environmental regulations, stringent budget shortfalls, and audits.
