Description

TRB’s National Cooperative Highway Research Program (NCHRP) Research Report 918: Approaches for Determining and Complying with TMDL Requirements Related to Roadway Stormwater Runoff has been released in pre-publication format. The report includes strategies to help improve total maximum daily load (TMDL) evaluations and assist in the decision-making process for the development of and compliance with TMDLs.

The report also includes information on how to determine and address TMDL requirements related to roadway stormwater runoff.

The report lays out the foundation of various approaches for DOT compliance with TMDLs by addressing the following objectives:

  • Analyze data, statistics, and information about stormwater runoff from roadways and other land uses or other pollutant sources.
  • Identify strategies for determining the significance and contribution of stormwater pollutants from roadways within a given watershed.
  • Identify practical feasibility of implementing traditional structural and nonstructural best management practices (BMPs).
  • Identify approaches for determining the relationship between performance and cost effectiveness of BMPs.
  • Identify approaches for determining the efficiency and effectiveness of innovative water quality solutions not commonly used by stormwater practitioners at state DOTs and other transportation agencies, such as stormwater banking, pollutant trading, off-site mitigation, off-site source control, and other holistic compliance strategies.

A set of presentation slides summarizing the project that developed the report is available for download.
