E – 1596 – Best Management Practices – Urban Stormwater Systems
Intended Audience: environmental, civil, construction, and hydraulic engineers
PDH UNITS: 5
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:
- Problem assessment, including technological, economic, and institutional considerations
- Examination of alternative practices
- Appropriate public participation
