Document Type: Book - Proceedings


This book describes current practice in the design of pollution controls for urban runoff. The contents comprise the proceedings of an Engineering Foundation Conference held in July 1988, titled Current Practice and Design Criteria for Urban Runoff Water Quality Control. The papers are concerned with the pragmatic, functional design and maintenance of devices that have been demonstrated to work in the field. These include: wet and dry detention ponds, infiltration devices, sedimentation tanks, swirl concentrators, wetlands, and source controls. Three related sessions address receiving water responses to urban runoff, the Water Quality Act of 1987, and institutional issues related to implementation of urban runoff quality control. These proceedings bring together much of the collective knowledge of American and European technology in the subject area. Many of the authors are internationally recognized in their field.
