The control of water quality in urban runoff is in its technical infancy. Never-the-less Water Quality Act of 1987 states that stormwater pollution must be reduced to the maximum extent practicable (MEP). There are methods and techniques that can insure that the levels of reduction achieved are indeed the maximum practicable. The purpose of this paper is to provide general guidelines for runoff quality controls intended to meet this goal.
