A properly functioning bioretention practice should drain within 48 hours of a runoff event

Best management practices (bmps) are designed, built and maintained with a specific performance goal in mind, such as removing a certain percentage of pollutants or reducing runoff volume by a specific amount. Bmps can be assessed to determine how they are performing and if they are performing at a desired or intended level.

This page provides links to pages that provide details about how bmps can be assessed for performance.
