The Department of Defense DoD is under increasing pressure from regulators and local communities to protect water bodies by reducing the total magnitude and concentration of industrial site pollutants being discharged within storm water runoff into harbors, bays, lakes, and streams. The objective of this project is to demonstrate a small footprint storm water technology for industrial areas that merges structural Best Management Practice BMP and Low Impact Development LID principles to decrease the concentration of pollutants such as suspended solids, dissolved and particulate metals, and oil and grease to the National Pollution Discharge Elimination System NPDES permit requirements. The hybrid technology can be applied to new construction of industrial facilities, or retrofit existing industrial sites that are faced with meeting increasingly stringent NPDES discharge limits.
