Abstract : This report describes an evaluation of the effectiveness of using low impact development (LID) to mitigate stormwater runoff and metal contaminants from Navy commercial areas. The project was conducted at Naval Base San Diego (NBSD) between 2014 and 2017. The work was performed under Project 497 of the Navy's Environmental Sustainability Development to Integration program. The demonstration was completed in response to the need for methods to control stormwater runoff in operational and non-industrial areas of Navy bases requested by Naval Facilities Command Southwest and Northwest Environmental. The NBSD site was chosen for demonstration because it is subject to regulations of stormwater copper, lead, and zinc discharges under its National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System permit and a Total Maximum Daily Load (TMDL) requirement. The demonstration project successfully evaluated the implementation of LID technology to mitigate stormwater metal contaminants in a naval base commercial area. The outcomes are promising for future implementation at other comparable Navy sites around the country.
