BMP Performance Report Library

This BMP Performance Library includes references to independent third party reports/studies on the measured and/or anticipated performance of various proprietary and non-proprietary BMPs at reducing or eliminating the discharge of pollutants associated with urban runoff and stormwater. As a supplement to the Riverside County BMP Design Handbook, this BMP Performance Report Library is provided as a reference for the Permittees in their review and approval of WQMPs.


The identification of particular manufacturers, consultants, products, or services in the referenced reports in no way represents their endorsement by the District or the Permittees, nor does use of any BMPs identified within these reports guarantee a particular result. Each Permittee has the discretion to determine which BMPs are acceptable on a case by case basis, and the inclusion of a particular BMP within this library does not guarantee acceptance by the Permittee. The District and the Permittees within Riverside County do not generate nor maintain these reports, nor do they determine which BMPs are, or are not included in the referenced reports/studies. The phrase "Best Management Practice" is a common term used in Federal, State, and local regulations to label these types of products; usage of the term does not imply that the products identified in these reports are necessarily better than others not included. At the Permittees’ discretion, BMPs not included in this library may be accepted. For any proprietary BMPs, please contact the product manufacturer and follow the manufacturers' specifications for preparation, installation, and maintenance of their products.

This library will be updated/verified annually, and where appropriate, new studies will be added or updated, and obsolete studies will be removed.
