Abstract

Stormwater treatment practices may reduce runoff volumes, contaminant concentrations, and/or the total contaminant mass load carried by runoff into receiving water bodies. Processes used by treatment practices include physical processes such as sedimentation, filtration, and infiltration, along with thermal, biological, and chemical processes. A single treatment practice may use multiple processes.
This chapter discusses these processes in detail and presents a brief discussion of how to assess the performance or current condition of each process within a treatment practice.
