Partnerships With Academia
Note: EPA no longer updates this information, but it may be useful as a reference or resource.
EPA has established partnerships with academia. One such collaboration is with the University of Massachusetts, which has developed a searchable database containing validated performance data and technical information on innovative storm water treatment technologies.
The database resides on an interactive Web site called the Stormwater Technologies Clearinghouse that was designed to help stakeholders (such as conservation commissioners, local officials, state and federal regulators, site developers and consultants) interpret information such as site and environmental considerations and treatment efficiencies for various pollutants.
The database project was financed with federal funds from EPA to the Massachusetts Department of Environmental Protection under a Section 319 competitive grant. The database is still being refined and populated with information.
