Case Studies

Two rain gardens take center stage at the Buckman Heights apartment complex in Portland.
To learn how stormwater best management practices can be successfully implemented, key players from a small but representative sample of places actively promoting and developing stormwater BMPs were interviewed. They are presented as a series of case studies, available using the links below.

Case study locations were selected to provide a broad look at BMP implementation across the United States. An effort was made to identify both the strengths and weaknesses of each case study.

Additional case studies will be added as information and funding become available.
