WSU Technical Memoradum: Bioretention Soil Mix specifications
Design modification to a rain garden that improves nitrogen removal by creating anerobic conditions in an impervious well at the bottom. Remember, this design should be used just to treat the smaller water quality storm. Additional water beyond that volume should be able to overflow to an infiltration facility if feasible. Thanks to Tyler Phillips on the EPA's nspinfo listserv for sharing this with me.

Size a rain garden online (if your rainfall is a Type IA SBUH distribution, which it is if you're in Western Oregon.)
Size a stormwater planter (a rain garden with vertical side slopes) in Excel (if your rainfall is a Type IA SBUH distribution, which it is if you're in Western Oregon.) and learn what it all means here.
Size a rain garden (i.e. 3:1 side sloped facility that ponds) in Excel.
You can download a version of my site planning checklist and a checklist of over 200 best mangement practices that you might be able to apply in addition to rain gardens on your project on my Newsletter page under February.
Sign up on my newsletter to learn about new resources every month. OK, almost every month... Details that I developed with OSU Extension for rain gardens are coming soon, but you can check back at this link, too. (Right now, all that's up there are porous pavement details...)
The "Sustainability Considerations for Rain Gardens" matrix organizes my talking points and much more and is only for use by class participants in their work and offices. You can purchase a copy of it if you're not a class participant for $15. Contact me about that.
