Evaluation of compost addition to stormwater control measure (SCM) performance

Principal Investigator(s) 

Recent state law encourages the use of compost throughout the landscape. This project evaluates the possibility of using compost in bioretention and submerged gravel wetland stormwater control measures. Emphasis is on understanding, quantifying, and minimizing leaching of nitrogen and phosphorus from the compost. More information about this project is available online.
