Within the New England Stormwater Retrofit Manual, Nate Pacheco, Water Quality Resource Specialist with VHB, and Theresa McGovern, Water Resources Engineer with VHB along with the University of New Hampshire Stormwater Center and EPA, provide engineering guidance for implementing stormwater management for retrofit projects and difficult situations/sites. Retrofit stormwater management can minimize the impacts of existing development at sites that either lack stormwater controls or have insufficient controls in place. The manual provides flexible design guidance based on treatment processes and introduces the US Environmental Protection Agency’s Stormwater Control Measure Performance Curves as a tool to quantify water quality benefits (i.e. pollutant removal credits). The manual encourages designers to work with site constraints and consider small scale stormwater management with the understanding achieving some water quality treatment is better than none. Please join us on October 20th to learn more about how the guidance presented in the New England Stormwater Retrofit Manual could be implemented within the Connecticut River Valley.
