The period of 1979-1982 is characterized by an important growth of the number of research studies, and financial investments for practical applications of research results. That growth may be shown in the fact that more than 50% of the 1970-1982 French papers on Urban Hydrology have been published during the last four years. If rainfall-runoff modeling studies have been pursued, the most intensive research has been done on runoff quality or pollution aspects, and on new facilities in order to reduce non-point source-pollution due to urban runoff. From a practical point of view, studies on existing sewer systems' optimal control have been developed. Refs.
