BMPs

Two innovative BMPs, a bioretention cell (BRC) and an infiltration trench with CU-Structural Soil™ (ITSS) were constructed at the Blacksburg Aquatic and Community Centers to treat runoff from the parking lots and to serve as research and demonstration projects. Existing stormwater management at the site consisted of traditional curb and gutter and dry detention ponds, which discharged runoff to a tributary of Stroubles Creek.
