The overall objectives of the research conducted under NCHRP Project 25-1 were: 1. To identify the interactions between wetland systems and highway runoff. 2. To identify the effects - beneficial or otherwise - of highway runoff on wetlands. 3. To develop guidelines for the practical management of highway runoff in wetlands. This report (NCHRP Report 264) presents the management guidelines. The discussion in the report addresses three major topics: (1) interaction between highway runoff and wetlands and impact effects, (2) feasibility of using wetlands to treat highway runoff, and (3) management considerations in the control of highway runoff in, and use of, wetlands. The material in the guidelines provides a chapter for each of the elements considered important to wetland management.
