Evaluating bioretention hydrology and nutrient removal at three field sites in North Carolina
Three bioretention field sites in North Carolina were examined for pollutant removal abilities and hydrologic performance. The cells varied by fill media type or drainage configuration. The fieldExpand
Bioretention Technology: Overview of Current Practice and Future Needs
Bioretention, or variations such as bioinfiltration and rain gardens, has become one of the most frequently used storm-water management tools in urbanized watersheds. Incorporating both filtrationExpand
SUDS, LID, BMPs, WSUD and more – The evolution and application of terminology surrounding urban drainage
The management of urban stormwater has become increasingly complex over recent decades. Consequently, terminology describing the principles and practices of urban drainage has become increasinglyExpand
Pollutant Removal and Peak Flow Mitigation by a Bioretention Cell in Urban Charlotte, N.C.
Bioretention is a stormwater treatment practice that has gained popularity due to its aesthetics, potential to reduce flooding, and early documented improvements to stormwater quality. A bioretentionExpand
Field Survey of Permeable Pavement Surface Infiltration Rates
The surface infiltration rates of 40 permeable pavement sites were tested in North Carolina, Maryland, Virginia, and Delaware. Two surface infiltration tests pre- and postmaintenance were performedExpand
Hydrologic Comparison of Four Types of Permeable Pavement and Standard Asphalt in Eastern North Carolina
A permeable pavement parking lot in eastern North Carolina consisting of four types of permeable pavement and standard asphalt was monitored from June 2006 to July 2007 for hydrologic differences inExpand
Evaluation of Four Permeable Pavement Sites in Eastern North Carolina for Runoff Reduction and Water Quality Impacts
Four permeable pavement applications in North Carolina’s Coastal Plain were constructed and monitored to determine their effectiveness of reducing runoff quantity and improving water quality. SitesExpand
Evaluation of floating treatment wetlands as retrofits to existing stormwater retention ponds
Abstract Thousands of existing wet retention ponds have been built across the United States, primarily for the mitigation of peak flow and removal of sediment. These systems struggle to mitigateExpand
Meeting Hydrologic and Water Quality Goals through Targeted Bioretention Design
AbstractBioretention is one of the most commonly used stormwater control measures (SCMs) in North America and Australasia. However, current design is not targeted to regulatory need, often reflectingExpand
A Field Study of Green Roof Hydrologic and Water Quality Performance
Recent regulations intended to minimize the amount of nitrogen and phosphorus in stormwater runoff have resulted in interest in stormwater treatment practices to reduce nutrient loadings. InExpand
