Due to continuing public concern regarding environmental protection for the nation's waterways, new and more stringent water quality control regulations have been developed. This is most obvious in the area of nonpoint sources of pollutants, such as stormwater drainage. The National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) permitting requirements of the Clean Water Act have led to the establishment of Best Management Practices (BMP) and/or stormwater runoff management and treatment facilities. This paper presents a study on roadway drainage design, and how it relates to the use of stormwater runoff treatment facilities.
