Abstract

The objective of this research was to assess BMP performance and implementation in Lincoln, Nebraska. In order to accomplish this objective, four tasks were established: sampling of stormwater runoff at eight sites located upstream of Holmes Lake, inspecting BMPs at construction sites in Lincoln, sampling and analysis of soil phosphorus levels in the Holmes Lake watershed, and conducting discussions with professionals involved with stormwater management in Lincoln. Based on the information collected during these tasks, several recommendations regarding the BMP assessment process are made including: recommendations for sampling site selection, an inexpensive flow monitoring method, and a rapid construction site BMP assessment protocol.
