Soil, as interpreted here, refers to native soils or fill soils at a specific location prior to alteration (e.g. implementation of best management practice, construction activity, etc.). It does not refer to engineered media, which refers to a modified medium that typically includes soil.

Soils and soil properties have numerous applications in stormwater management, including the following.

  • Infiltration
  • Pollutant attenuation
  • Erosion
  • Plant nutrition
  • Structure
