Board of External Reviewers (BER)

The Board of External Reviewers (BER) consists of stormwater experts from across the United States. The Board reviews sampling plans or quality assurance project plans (QAPP’s), technical evaluation reports (TERs), and certain applications that are submitted to the TAPE program. Washington Stormwater Center staff coordinates and compiles BER reviews, and passes on certification recommendations to Ecology. The BER also provides expertise and guidance on the continuing evolution of the TAPE program.
