E – 1596 – Best Management Practices – Urban Stormwater Systems

Intended Audience: environmental, civil, construction, and hydraulic engineers



Uncover the best management practices (BMPs) for urban stormwater systems in our online engineering course curated by expert Don Parnell, PE.

A stormwater BMP is a method or combination of methods found to be the most effective and feasible means of preventing or reducing the amount of pollution generated by nonpoint sources, to a level that’s compatible with water quality goals.

This course presents the steps that should be taken before implementing BMP solutions for urban stormwater systems, such as:

  1. Problem assessment, including technological, economic, and institutional considerations
  2. Examination of alternative practices
  3. Appropriate public participation
