  • Abstract:
    The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Municipal Separate Storm Water Sewer System (MS4) Program regulations require municipalities and government agencies including the Louisiana Department of Transportation and Development (LADOTD) to develop and implement stormwater best management practices (BMPs) for linear transportation systems to reduce the discharge of pollutants, thereby protecting water quality. The BMPs commonly used for linear transportation systems include exfi ltration trench devices, infi ltration devices, vegetated bio-fi lter devices, and detention devices. While many of these BMPs have varying degrees of viability, none are applicable for the many sections of elevated roadways in Louisiana. In addition, most existing stormwater BMPs require high hydraulic conductivity topsoil for infi ltration; however, the soils in coastal Louisiana are typically composed of clay and silt, which have low permeability and may result in the failure of infi ltration-based BMPs. Therefore, an effi cient and cost-eff ective stormwater treatment device is urgently needed for complying with MS4 regulations.
