Fully updated to address the paradigm shift in the way stormwater is viewed and managed, Design of Urban Stormwater Controls focuses on consolidating technologies to foster a convergence between traditional stormwater controls and green infrastructure. This authoritative resource explains how systems of stormwater controls can be designed to meet multidisciplinary objectives, including flood control; stream channel protection; groundwater recharge; water quality improvement; protection of public safety, health, and welfare; and multipurpose public benefits. Coverage includes: urban stormwater management overview; effects of stormwater on receiving waters; performance goals for stormwater controls; unit processes and operations for stormwater control; selection criteria and design considerations; swales and strips; Basins; filters and infiltrators; gross pollutant traps and mechanical operations; maintenance of stormwater controls; whole life cost of stormwater controls; Performance assessment; and analytical tools for simulation of stormwater controls.
