Stormwater Drainage Assessment Tool

Constraints to improving the stormwater system include limited city-owned land, and competing objectives for improving city recreation and economic growth. Stormwater best management practices (BMPs) - detention ponds, rain gardens, and swales - slow and treat stormwater as it moves through the system to reduce flood risk during storms and improve water quality. Atkins worked with Bonita Springs to help the city decide where BMPs should be placed for the best results by developing the BMP Assessment Tool (BAT). The tool allows the city to simulate various scenarios for placing BMPs throughout the stormwater drainage system. Using a rainfall/runoff algorithm, the tool estimates pollutant loads across the network for each scenario, supporting informed decision-making on which BMPs to implement and where to place them.
