Managing Urban Stormwater Systems

Managing stormwater flow is a particular challenge in urban environments. Urban Stormwater Management Tools details the design of basins and detection systems, covers subsurface and wetland issues, and presents a complete methodology for regulating sewer overflow. It includes methods for:

* Hydrologically and hydraulically analyzing storm water systems

* Designing storm water inlets, storm sewers, detention systems and infiltration basins

* Learning about design methods ranging from the rational method to advanced simulation and optimization methods for sewer systems

* Integrating operations and management considerations into designs

* Performing risk/reliability analysis of stormwater systems
