The Analysis of National Basic Information Needs in Urban Hydrology has focused on Data Needs, Data Devices, and Data Networks. Primarily aimed at improvement in design of storm drainage, intensive study has been made of the data requirements for analyzing rainfall-runoff-quality relationships and of suitable data collection instrumentation, with consideration of the types of networks required for the collection of adequate data. There are important implications in the use of data as part of the intelligence required for comprehensive management and operation of urban water services. ASCE, through its Urban Hydrology Research Council and with the assistance of scores of experts, has had the privilege of mapping a national program of urban storm drainage research.
