UNH Stormwater Center 2009 Data Report Now Available

April 16, 2010

The University of New Hampshire (UNH) Stormwater Center 2009 Biannual Data report is now available.

Created to support stormwater decision makers with a range of expertise, this report combines data from the Center's independent evaluation of stormwater treatment system performance with basic information about system function, design, and implementation. This edition also includes outcomes of the Center’s targeted research into topics such as cold climate performance of systems and the impact of pavement seal coating on water quality.

This report was produced with the support of the Cooperative Institute for Coastal and Estuarine Environmental Technology (CICEET), a partnership of UNH and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA).

The UNH Stormwater Center is unique in its ability to evaluate the water quality treatment and water quantity management performance of stormwater systems in a side-by-side setting. Its research field site is designed to test a range of systems, from low impact development style approaches to manufactured devices. This report is one of several tools the Center uses to communicate the results of its research to coastal communities interested in designing stormwater projects that protect water resources and improve resilience in a time of rapid development and more frequent and intense storms.
