PREFACE Large rainfall and snowmelt events cause numerous water
management challenges in both urban and rural areas. In urban areas, these
events cause stormwater runoff, which results in a variety of impacts on receiving
waters, including flooding, geomorphologic changes, pollution, ecosystem
degradation and impairment of beneficial water uses. To prevent or mitigate such
impacts, stormwater management has been introduced and implemented
through a system of ...

"No adverse impact" is an approach that will lead to reduced flood losses
throughout the nation while promoting and rewarding strong management and
mitigation actions at the local level. Source: NAI Whitepaper, Association of State
Floodplain Managers, February 2002, www.floods.org. In major urban areas,
structural measures not only are usually expensive but they could create social
disruption and inconvenience during construction. The optimal strategy for storm-
water ...

Since 1990's, the urban stormwater management has rapidly changed from the
conventional approach on flood mitigation to a focus on urban runoff quality
control. The 1987 Federal Water Quality Act is a reflection of the public's support
for improvements on urban water environment, and such legislation gives new
directions to urban runoff management. In the Unites States, governments and
industries have a mandate from Congress to minimize the discharge of pollutants
to ...

In developing countries, urbanization is not always accomplished by adequate
land-use planning. Furthermore, in ultra-urban environments, the lack of open
spaces, occupation of flood plains, and high population densities decrease flood
control measure alternatives. Therefore, source control techniques can be an
interesting option for flood mitigation. This paper presents a discussion about the
use of on-site stormwater detention tanks, based on the comparison of hydraulic
design ...
