  • What are BMPS? BMPs can be divided up into Pre-Construction and Post Construction BMPs. We know what Pre-Construction BMPs are. Post Construction BMPs are those systems in place for water quality purposes. Here is an example of a Nutrient Separator Baffle Box, CDS Unit, and a Filterra Unit.
  • The purpose of this presentation is to focus on Pre-Construction BMPs. That is the BMPs that need to be installed and maintained before construction begins and throughout the life of the construction process.
  • For the purposes of this presentation, the definition of Pre-Construction BMPs are…
  • Pre-Construction BMPs can be categorized down even further into Sediment Control BMPS, Erosion Control BMPs and “Other” BMPs.
  • Here are some example of non-traditional Inlet BMPs. From Top Right To Left of a Silt Sack, Grate Gattor, Dandy Sack, Gutter Gator, Big Red and Gutter Eel.
  • Here are examples of Perimeter Control. This is an example of Silt Soxx, Different types of Silt Fence and Erosion Eels.
  • Here is a typical example of swale BMPs. This is a type of Wattle, Tri-Dike and Snake Bag.
  • Here are examples of Tracking Control BMPs. This is an example of a Rock Entrance with cattle guards, a wheel wash, vacuum truck, Grizzly Trackout System and a Mud Mat.
  • As far as Sediment Control. Typically these are divided up into Erosion Control Blanket types of products and Spray on Blanket types of Products.
  • Other BMPs include Concrete Washouts. Here is a variety of systems.
  • Here are examples of typical dewatering systems.
  • These are examples of some common types of BMPs seen around the Colorado Area.
  • The examples you have seen demonstrate the variety of BMPs available to construction companies today. And there are constantly more products arriving on the market. The CSC has identified a need for non-traditional BMP evaluations.
  • Colorado Stormwater Council Construction Committee has elected to undertake a BMP in Field Study.
  • The goal is to come up with some common sense guidelines that all MS4s can utilize in evaluating the appropriateness of these non-traditional BMPs when they are proposed to be used by contractors.
  • We currently are defining what criteria we will use to evaluate the effectiveness of these non-traditional BMPs.
  • This is our current self set time-line. We can make minor adjustments if needed.
  • If you haven’t common to the construction committee meeting your missing out! We strongly urge you to attend and be part of the council.
  • If you want to participate in this study and want more details please contact…
  • Thank you to following suppliers who have decide to contribute product for this study.

    3. 3. PRE-CONSTRUCTION BMPS<br />Lets focus on Pre-Construction BMPs<br />
    4. 4. PRE-CONSTRUCTION BMPS<br />Pre-Construction BMPs are those BMPs that are utilized during the construction process to prevent /minimize the migration of sediment into stormwater lines, and water bodies.<br />

    16. 16. THE NEED FOR MORE RESEARCH<br />The Colorado Stormwater Council has identified that BMP technologies are in a constant state of flux. <br />Furthermore, there are non-traditional BMPs being used by contractors that need to be evaluated in actual field conditions.<br />www.coloradostormwatercouncil.org<br />
    17. 17. THE SOLUTION<br />The Colorado Stormwater Council has agreed that an in field BMP study needs to be performed.<br />www.coloradostormwatercouncil.org<br />
    18. 18. THE GOAL<br />The goal of this study is to come up with some common sense guidelines that all MS4s can utilize to decide if these non-traditional BMPs are effective.<br />www.coloradostormwatercouncil.org<br />
    19. 19. WHERE WE ARE<br />As of today we are in the process of establishing the evaluation criteria.<br />We want to establish what will represent an acceptable BMP and what will not. <br />www.coloradostormwatercouncil.org<br />
    20. 20. TIME LINE<br />Time Line of what we want to accomplish<br />January establish criteria<br />February obtain partner MS4s that want to participate<br />March distribute BMPs to partners and Install<br />March thru September evaluate the performance<br />October compile and analyze Data<br />November Publish on CSC Website.<br />www.coloradostormwatercouncil.org<br />
    21. 21. GET INVOLVED<br />We want all MS4s in Colorado to get involved in installing these BMPs in one of their projects and evaluating them according to the criteria that will be established.<br />www.coloradostormwatercouncil.org<br />
    22. 22. CONTACT INFORMATION<br />If you want to participate please email, snail mail or call:<br />Joel Cantu with the Southeast Metro Stormwater Authority at jcantu@semswa.org <br />Tanna Boisvert with the City of Arvada at Tanna-B@arvada.org<br />
    23. 23. THANK YOU<br /> Thanks to following companies who have decided to contribute to this study.<br /> We are in the process of obtaining commitments from additional suppliers so spread the word. <br />
