Title: Optimal Selection & Design of Stormwater BMP Facilities in a Highway Setting
Contact: G. Michael Fitch
Project No.: 79420
Target Date: 06/12/2008
Abstract: The purpose of the research is to develop a stormwater management BMP design document which will supplement the recently updated VDOT Manual of Practice for Stormwater Management. This project will result in the state-of-the-practice document, complete with design examples, site drawings, and hydraulic calculations.  Additionally, a BMP selection matrix and an analytical hierarchical program (AHP) software based BMP selection/design tool will be developed.  The AHP computing module will serve not only as a BMP selection tool, but also as a technical design aid for the chosen BMP measure.
