Title:Development of Mixed Media Filtration for Stormwater Runoff Treatment
Principal Investigators:Guanghui Hua and Christopher Schmit
University:South Dakota State University
Project #:MPC-498
RiP #:01579916
Keywords:control, detention basins, filtration, groundwater, runoff, water pollution, water quality management


Many surface water bodies in South Dakota are impaired by sediment, nutrients, and bacteria from point and non-point sources. Stormwater runoff has been identified as a source of contamination in surface waters. Mixed-media filtration is a highly promising treatment option that can reduce the concentrations of multiple contaminants in stromwater runoff generated from highways and urban areas. We propose to develop a low-maintenance, low-cost mixed-media filtration system for stormwater treatment in South Dakota.
