Stormwater retrofit manual
The Center for Watershed Protection’s new manual Manual 3: Urban Stormwater Retrofit Practices reflects over two decades of Center experience in retrofitting more than 25 urban watersheds across the country. This manual outlines the basics of retrofits, describes the 13 unique locations where they can be found, and presents rapid methods to find, design and deliver retrofits to meet a wide range of subwatershed objectives. The concepts of retrofitting are illustrated in more than 75 figures, 150 photos, 60 tables and nine appendices. The manual contains updated costs for retrofit practices, updated pollutant removal data for stormwater treatment options, a design point method to estimate individual retrofit removal rates, and practical tips to support the design, permitting and construction of retrofit projects. This 400+ page guidance is available as a free download on the Center website.
