Performance and Whole Life Costs of Best Management Practices and Sustainable Urban Drainage Systems
This report documents the performance and whole life costs of stormwater practices in the U.S. (Best Management Practices) and UK (Sustainable Urban Drainage Systems) aimed at reducing the impact of urbanisation.
The BMPs/SUDS selected for evaluation in this study include retention ponds, extended detention basins, vegetated swales, bioretention, porous pavements, and various infiltration practices.
The study included literature and database reviews, hydraulic modelling, site investigations and development of a whole-life cost model.
This report provides guidance on the selection, whole-life costing, design, and maintenance of BMPs/SUDS, which will improve confidence in their use and performance and lead to a more widespread and appropriate adoption of these systems.
