The mission of the USEPA's Storm and Combined Sewer Pollution Control Research and Development Program is to quantify the urban storm and combined sewer overflow pollution problems and develop countermeasure controls. As a result of the Program's efforts an advanced technology or state-of-the-art has been developed, demonstrated, and disseminated. This paper addresses the problem and characterization of stormwater and combined sewage impacts upon our Nation's receiving waters while presenting various levels of pollution control technology. Efforts of urban runoff management examined deal with source control, collection system control, storage and treatment, and integrated (complex) systems.
