Previous studies have focused on hydrologic and sediment exports from construction sites where ESC practices were either not implemented or poorly maintained (Daniel et al., 1979; Madison et al., 1979). Impacts of construction on nutrient and metal concentrations in stormwater and mass export have not been well documented. This study, called the Jordan Cove Urban Watershed Project, compares the effectiveness of construction best management practices (BMPs) in a low-impact residential development to traditional construction practices using weekly storm flow, peak flow, pollutant concentration, and mass export.
