Capture of Gross Solids and Sediment by Pretreatment Practices for Bioretention
The purpose of this project was to measure the performance of several pretreatment practices for
bioretention, both proprietary and non-proprietary, commonly used in Minnesota using field-based
performance testing. Five pretreatment practices for bioretention were assessed for capturing
sediment and gross solids with field testing.
