Evaluation of Best Management Practices for Highway Runoff Control
TRB’s National Cooperative Highway Research Program (NCHRP) Report 565: Evaluation of Best Management Practices for Highway Runoff Control examines best management practices for highway runoff control. These practices are designed to provide a means of avoiding or mitigating the negative impacts of various pollutants that can be carried by rainfall into the groundwater and receiving waters. These pollutants include materials discharged by vehicles using the highway system, pesticides and fertilizers from adjacent landscapes, and particulates from the breakdown of the pavements themselves.
The theoretical material documented in the report is accompanied by a CD-ROM (CRP-CD-63, affixed to the back cover of this report) containing three additional volumes and a spreadsheet model. The additional volumes are the following: (1) User’s Guide for BMP/LID Selection (Guidelines Manual), (2) Appendices to the User’s Guide for BMP/LID Selection (Appendices), and (3) Low-Impact Development Design Manual for Highway Runoff Control (LID Design Manual).
