New bioretention soil mix to treat phosphrous

We have published a new guidance document for our high performance Bioretention Soil Mix and the suggested uses in municipal stormwater NPDES permit programs. This mix gives stormwater managers and designers a new option to treat phosphorus using bioretention, a very common green infrastructure tool.

Read our guidance document

Our stormwater manuals provide stormwater permit implementation and management guidance. To determine which manual you need, contact your municipality or permit administrator.

Manual equivalency

In some cases, municipal stormwater permittees have the option of either adopting portions of the appropriate Stormwater Manual or portions of a regional manual determined to be equivalent to the Ecology manual.
