Document Type: Proceeding Paper
Abstract: A survey of stormwater professionals in the United States and Canada was conducted by the Urban Drainage and Flood Control District in 1991 regarding the current state of practice in the design and use of stormwater detention facilities. This survey was a follow up to a similar survey conducted by the American Society of Civil Engineers Task Committee on Detention Outlet Structures in 1982. A total of 378 stormwater professionals were contacted of which 135 responded with a completed questionnaire. The individuals that responded represent a wide variety of interests and various groups of employers such as consulting engineering firms, industry, academia, and city, county, state, federal and regional governments. This paper summarizes many of the responses received and provides an insight in how the use of stormwater detention has changed between 1982 and 1991.
