Fully updated to address the paradigm shift in the way stormwater is viewed and managed, this Manual of Practice 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
