Evaluating Stormwater Technology Performance - Module I:
Guidance for the Technology Acceptance Reciprocity Partnership (TARP) Stormwater Protocol: Stormwater Best Management Practice Demonstrations

New stormwater BMP products keep appearing in the marketplace. Yet the availability of good data and information on most of these technologies is still scarce. To address this problem, forward thinking states formed the Technology Acceptance and Reciprocity Partnership (TARP) Stormwater Work Group to evaluate innovative stormwater technologies by producing scientifically credible data. The Group developed two Internet-based training courses. This module covers how to:
. Use the Protocol to identify gaps and inconsistencies in a test plan for evaluation of a stormwater technology
. Understand differences in state requirements; to recognize data deficiencies
. Develop, implement, and review a test plan
. Understand, evaluate, and implement statistical methods.

Evaluating Stormwater Technology Performance - Module II:
Training in Support of the TARP Stormwater Protocol: Stormwater Best Management Practice Demonstrations

This module covers
. Collecting and Analyzing Stormwater BMP Data
. Statistical Analyses
. Sampling Design
. Data Adequacy: Case Study
