Abstract: Urban flooding and drainage problems are the result of complex interactions between natural and man-made systems. Comprehensive analysis of the hydrologic characteristics of these problems often require the use of computer techniques and models. Beginning in the early 1970's urban areas in Georgia have been developing computer models and integrating them into local stormwater management programs. The development of hydrologic-hydraulic models in Georgia is discussed and a recently developed model for use on Apple and IBM personal computers is described.
