The goal of this project is to develop a reference database that catalogues different BMPs implemented in Texas and their performance in improving water quality. This resource will help streamline the pollutant load reduction estimate process for planners, assist plan reviewers with ensuring the scientific rigor of submitted watershed-based plans, and assist planners and stakeholders in deciding both the amount and types of BMPs that are effective for the target pollutants. Published studies for potential inclusion will be found by searching leading academic databases such as Google scholar, Web of Science, and Scopus. Ultimately this process will help planners in the development of effective watershed-based plans.
