TARP - The Technology Acceptance and Reciprocity Partnership for Stormwater Management Innovation

New technologies often face unnecessary and financially burdensome regulatory and permit hurdles that slow down or prevent their use. TARP provides performance data on new technologies critical to state environmental protection efforts.

"New technologies often face unnecessary and financially burdensome regulatory and permit hurdles that slow down or prevent their use. That is why TARP - The Technology Acceptance and Reciprocity Partnership - was formed by the states of California, Illinois, Maryland, Massachusetts, New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, and Virginia."

TARP IS A STATE TOOL TO PROMOTE SCIENTIFICALLY SOUND, COST-EFFECTIVE ENVIRONMENTAL DECISION-MAKING

Information on the performance of new technologies is critical to state environmental protection efforts. Regulatory standards and permits often rely on technology performance data.

Unfortunately, few, if any, standardized methods have been established to guide the collection and evaluation of technology performance across the states. And, while states look to new environmental technologies as cost-effective opportunities to achieve better environmental performance, reliable performance information is hard to find. As a result, new technologies often face unnecessary and financially burdensome regulatory and permit hurdles that slow down or prevent their use.


TARP is a multistate program

The Massachusetts Stormwater Technology Evaluation Project (MASTEP) has created this web site to host a source of verified technical information on stormwater Best Management Practices (BMPs) to provide information on innovative technologies to BMP users.

STORMWATER TECHNOLOGY CLEARINGHOUSE

The University of Massachusetts has developed a searchable database containing validated performance data and technical information on innovative stormwater treatment technologies.

Click here to access the database.

The TARP protocol is the basis for evaluating treatment efficiencies for various pollutants and the website is designed to help stakeholders interpret information such as site and environmental considerations as well as whether performance studies meet the minimum TARP requirements. It also serves as a repository for test reports and performance data from a variety of sources.

The project has been financed with federal funds from the US EPA to the Massachusetts Department of Environmental Protection under a Section 319 competitive grant.

The clearinghouse is still being populated with information and being refined – any comments that you may have are welcome and should be sent to Jerry Schoen at 413-545-5532 or jschoen@tei.umass.edu
