EPA just announced the release of the Bioretention Design Handbook. The handbook was developed to inform practitioners about the latest approaches and lessons learned for bioretention design, construction, inspection, and operation and maintenance.
The handbook contains a compilation of the current state of knowledge from published literature, interviews, and site visits with leading municipalities and practitioners across the United States. A unique feature includes the numerous photographs of bioretention facilities from more than 20 municipalities across the contiguous United States that showcase a diversity of design techniques.
The handbook can be found on the EPA’s Office of Wetlands, Oceans and Watersheds, Nonpoint Source Programs webpage here: https://www.epa.gov/nps/urban-runoff-low-impact-development
