Bias of stormwater infiltration measurement methods evaluated using numerical experiments
Tecca, N.P., J. Nieber and J. Gulliver
Vadose Zone Journal   2022

Infiltration stormwater control measures (SCMs) have the potential to contribute towards mitigating the effects of urbanization on downstream receiving waters. Infiltration SCMs are most often successful when the in‐situ saturated hydraulic conductivity is well characterized.

Wet Pond Maintenance for Phosphorus Retention  .pdf
Taguchi, V.J., B.D. Janke, W.R. Herb, J.S .Gulliver, J.C. Finlay and P. Natarajan
Minnesota Department of Transportation     2022

This report considers the outcomes of the pond maintenance strategies of sediment treatment to reduce internal loading of phosphorus, mechanical aeration, alteration of pond outlet to pull water off the bottom, reduction of wind sheltering, dredging, outlet treatment by iron enhanced sand filtration, and reduction of phosphorus loading from the watershed.
