Abstract

This article reviews and provides evaluation guidelines for six major storm water best management practices including bioretention areas, grassed swales/filter strips, infiltration trenches, porous pavement, rain barrels and wet detention ponds. A detailed table allows for quick and easy design comparisons, including a separate table which allows for site specific cost comparisons. A logic diagram is provided as a basic tool for screening the most feasible management practice.
