A database was developed from published research for assessing the impact of BMP implementation on nutrient load and concentration. The objectives of this study were to develop a database of common fields of information from published research that could be used to assess nutrient measurements directly related to BMP implementation and, where available, measures of cost-effectiveness. This study, therefore, involved screening, identification, and review of appropriate articles, development of an ACCESS database, data extraction from appropriate articles, and development of a query interface to the database to facilitate use by a wider audience. A total of 596 articles were identified from titles, keywords, and abstracts for possible inclusion in the database. The main criteria for selecting articles for inclusion in the database was that the article report on primary research and include results from monitored field studies. Based on these criteria, 316 articles were excluded, data from 168 articles were incorporated in the database, and 112 articles remain to be reviewed.
