1The ratings are based on "best" practices scenario, where a practice has been properly designed, constructed, and maintained. For vegetated practices, it is generally assumed native perennial vegetation is used. 2 Benefits assume there is no underdrain. If an underdrain is present, the benefit will be reduced.
