The Water Environment Research Foundation (WERF; Alexandria, Va.) currently is seeking proposals for an applicability analysis of and guidance on existing models for water quality criteria to protect designated uses from nutrient impacts. Proposals are due by Nov. 18 at 5:00 p.m. Eastern Standard Time.

WERF recently released a stormwater best management practice (BMP) performance analysis compendium, which summarizes data from the International BMP Database on five parameters: nutrients, solids, metals, fecal indicator bacteria and runoff volume. A related digest presents the information in a condensed format.
