TRB’s National Cooperative Highway Research Program (NCHRP) Report 767: Measuring and Removing Dissolved Metals from Stormwater in Highly Urbanized Areas presents prototype best management practices (BMPs) for the removal of dissolved metals in stormwater runoff.
The report presents three conceptual configurations in detail: two vault system configurations for urban and rural settings, and an inlet scupper with media for bridge deck drainage systems.
The report also includes standard protocols to accurately measure the levels of dissolved metals in stormwater. Practical guidance on the use of these protocols is provided in an appendix to the final report. The report is accompanied by an Excel spreadsheet on CD designed to assist in sizing the filter bed in the vaults and the bridge deck inlet scupper.
The CD is also available for download from TRB’s website as an ISO image. Links to the ISO image and instructions for burning a CD from an ISO image are provided below.
