Publication Ensures The Effectiveness Of Manufactured Treatment Devices
October 11, 2017

The American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE) new publication, Stormwater Manufactured Treatment Devices: Certification Guidelines provides a framework for regulatory agencies to create verification and certification programs for stormwater treatment systems. To meet regulatory requirements for treating stormwater runoff before it reaches receiving waters, many communities are looking for compact systems, especially in areas where land is not readily available. Manufacturers have responded with a wide range of structural best management practices (BMPs), which are also known as stormwater control measures (SCMs) or manufactured treatment devices (MTDs).

Regulators and end users can use this book when assessing the efficiency of MTDs, as well as to assist regulators in establishing certification programs for these devices. The authors address seven critical components in the development of design criteria, testing, verification, and certification of MTDs: laboratory testing; scaling relations; field testing; data reporting; data analysis and performance evaluation; inspection and maintenance; and verification and certification.

Filling a knowledge gap, this book helps environmental regulators at the federal, state, and local levels, as well as owners and managers, to ensure that stormwater treatment measures achieve their intended purpose of cleaner runoff to the nation’s water environment.
