  • Abstract:
    The Oregon Department of Transportation (ODOT) has installed several stormwater treatment facilities to

    improve the quality of runoff discharged from the State’s highway network. These facilities include a

    variety of both above ground and below ground structures, such as vegetated swales, filter strips,

    detention basins, infiltration ponds, catch basin filters, and various proprietary systems. To complement

    existing work devoted to providing effectiveness and efficiency information of stormwater best

    management practices (BMPs) (www.bmpdatabase.org), ODOT is interested in evaluating the

    performance of the stormwater treatment facilities that are currently employed and identify the ones that

    are most appropriate for Oregon’s highways. Implementation of stormwater BMPs is likely to be

    expanded by ODOT in the near future in response to the Phase II NPDES requirements. Therefore

    ODOT would like to know how well their current BMPs perform, their relative cost-effectiveness, and

    how they compare with other water quality best management practices (BMPs) not currently being used

    by ODOT.

    To ensure the collection and analysis of quality data using scientifically sound techniques, a monitoring

    approach must be developed that specifically addresses all of the steps necessary to collect, analyze, and

    report stormwater BMP efficiency and effectiveness data. As Task 1 in developing a monitoring

    approach, an extensive analysis of the most recent literature relating to performance monitoring of

    stormwater best management practices (BMPs) was be conducted. This document provides an annotated

    bibliography summarizing the most current information related to BMP monitoring, as well as a

    description of the potential value of the information with regards to the development of ODOT’s

    stormwater BMP monitoring protocols.

    During the next task of this project, information summarized below will be evaluated to identify what

    local information is currently available, how it might be expanded, and how it could be used to assess the

    efficiency or effectiveness of various water quality treatment facilities.
