Surface water contamination can often be reduced by passing runoff water through perennial grass filters. Research was conducted in to to evaluate the size of cool season grass filters consisting primarily of tall fescue (Festuca arundinacea Schreb) with some orchard grass (Dactylis glomerata L.) relative to drainage area size in reducing runoff sediment and phosphorus (P).Cited by:

    A dry detention basin is an impoundment or excavated basin for the short-term detention of stormwater runoff from a completed development that allows a controlled release from the structure at downstream, pre-development flow rates. Conventional dry detention basins typically control peak runoff for 2-year and year hour storms. Bioretention Basins. Bioretention basins are landscaped depressions or shallow basins used to slow and treat on-site stormwater runoff. Stormwater is directed to the basin and then percolates through the system where it is treated by a number of physical, chemical and biological processes.

In order to bring the soil bed in the flume to the same level of consolidation as the soil under the grass strip, it was. A strip is designed to filter surface sheet flow. Concentrated flows need to be dispersed before water enters a strip. A filter strip is typically positioned at the down-slope edge of a field or disturbed area.

Filter strips are normally only used when adjacent and up-gradient areas have slopes gradients between 1. Effectiveness. The water quality benefits of filter strips and grass riparian buffers are very variable and often site-specific.

FILTER STRIP. Code (Ac) DEFINITION A strip or area of herbaceous vegetation that removes contaminants from overland flow. PURPOSE • Reduce suspended solids and associated contaminants in runoff and excessive sediment in surface waters. • Reduce dissolved contaminant loadings in runoff.

Grass filter strips are low-angle vegetated slopes designed to treat sheet flow runoff from adjacent impervious areas. Filter strips (also known as vegetated filter strips and grassed filters) function by slowing runoff velocities, filtering out sediment and other pollutants, and.

upslope contour strips (20% PFS with strips) (figure 2). In July ofareas receiving PFS treatment were seeded with a diverse mixture of native prairie forbs and grasses, dominated by Indian grass (Sorghastrum nutans. L.), little bluestem (Schizachyrium scoparium. L.), and big bluestem (Andropogon gerardii.

L.). Prairie filterCited by: vegetated controls (grassy swales and vegetative filter strips). For instance, stormwater runoff from roads in many rural areas are conveyed across vegetated areas and through grass lined ditches.

When designed as described in this manual, these vegetated areas will provide the required reduction in TSS loads without additional treatment.

Infiltration (36–82% of runoff volume) substantially reduced the mass of contaminants exiting the filter strips. Doubling filter strip width from to 15 m doubled infiltration and dilution, but did not improve sediment settling.

Simulated rainfall and runoff were used to compare the effectiveness of 6 m and 3 m wide filter strips of switchgrass (Panicum virgatum) and cool-season filter strips consisting of bromegrass (Bromus inermis), timothy (Phleum pratense) and fescue (Festuca spp.) in reducing sediment, nitrogen and phosphorus in surface runoff from adjacent crop fields.

The runoff flows overland down the sides of the median as in a filter strip and then parallel to the highway more» as in a grassed swale. The pollutant removal efficiency of a bioretention area and a level spreader-grass filter strip implemented at North Carolina highway facilities was assessed.

The assessment consisted of monitoring inflow, outflow, and on-site rainfall for at least 13 storm events.
