Abstract: There exists a need to develop a method for the sizing of urban stormwater runoff capture volume for water quality enhancement purposes. This paper describes a method that utilizes hydrologic principles for optimizing such a volume in terms of the storm events and storm runoff volume being captured. The applicability of the method is illustrated using a 40 year hourly rainfall record collected at the Denver Raingage.
