Summary

The complete guide to managing the quantity and quality of urban storm water runoff. Focuses on the planning and design of facilities and systems to control flooding, erosion, and non-point source pollution. Explains the practical application of the state-of-the-art in concepts and methods, based on the author's nearly 20 years' urban water resources engineering experience in the public and private sectors--and the state-of-the-art of urban surface water management is far ahead of the state-of-the-practice. This book covers all the major methods, and discusses other available, but little-known, concepts, tools, and techniques. Chapters cover the emergency and convenience system concept, master planning, computer modeling, multi-purpose flood control/water-quality enhancement/recreation facilities, and more.
