Stormwater management has significant consequences for urban hydrology, water quality, and flood risk, and has changed substantially over history, but it is unknown how these paradigm shifts play out at the local scale and whether local changes in stormwater infrastructure use follow similar trajectories across cities. This research addressed: (1) How does current infrastructure use and past.
Abstract: Stormwater is a resource, but the traditional stormwater management practices treat it as a waste and cause many problems. Green Street is a new method to manage the street stormwater runoff through the landscape architecture application. By analyzing the origin, definition and function of the Green Street, it can draw a conclusion that the Green Street originates from America, it is.
The research at the UVM Bioretention Laboratory compares water quality across different soil media, vegetation, and hydrologic regimes used in combination to determine the treatment that best reduces sediment, phosphorus, and nitrogen from stormwater runoff. Soil moisture, plant and microbial biomass and greenhouse gas production are also being measured in this outdoor laboratory.Learn More
As the practice of storm-water management evolves, so has our understanding of the tools. As we move away from a myopic flood control perspective, new tools to include what we now call green infrastructure best management practices (BMPs) were developed. Green roofs, rain gardens, and porous pavements appeared, with much of the design elements based on reasonable estimates of performance, thus.Learn More
SUMMARY: Based upon a review of the literature, this paper focuses on the provision of drainage systems and stormwater management strategies in low-income urban settlements. Although engineered infrastructure is a necessary component for drainage of urban runoff, non-structural approaches are important complementary measures, focusing on actions to prevent and mitigate problems related to.Learn More
Storm Water Management In most urban areas, population is increasing rapidly and the issue of supplying adequate water to meet societal needs and to ensure equity in access to water is one of the most urgent and significant challenges faced by decision-makers. With respect to the physical alternatives to fulfill sustainable management of freshwater, there are two solutions: finding alternate.Learn More
This paper is geared to those involved in any aspect of land development: the public, land developers, engineers, planners, land use decision-makers, builders, and those who are interested in promoting low impact development (LID) in their communities. This paper includes an introduction on urban hydrology and typical stormwater management practices so the connection and associated costs.Learn More
This paper in the first place reviews the concept and research fields of urban resilience; besides, according to the characteristics of the Ilmpark situated in Weimar, This paper analyzes the necessity and potential on stormwater management of this area and then it concludes the alternative strategies of improvement based on the theory of urban resilience. With the development of cities.Learn More
The overall goal of this paper is to explore the feasibility of using permeable pavements as a potential practice to help manage stormwater runoff and mitigate heat island effects, particularly near-surface heat islands. Hence, a major portion of this paper is devoted to present a summary of some experimental results related to the thermal performance and cooling effect (both reflective.Learn More
The purpose of this study is to examine various stormwater management plans and projects on university campuses. The ultimate goal is to help the University of Pennsylvania develop a comprehensive stormwater management plan, within the context of Philadelphia’s stormwater management regulatory framework. This paper will.Learn More
This paper observes the negative and harmful effects of water pollution and storm water runoff on the environment and the surrounding community. The most common form of water pollution is sediment runoff. It then goes on to explain the research and effectiveness of Best Management Practices (BMPs) and their positive effects. BMPs are conservation practices that can preserve or improve the.Learn More

Although trees appear to hold great potential in strategic urban stormwater management, additional research is needed in four major areas: (1) documenting the performance of trees as a stormwater control with respect to species and life stage; (2) considering the influences of local soil, atmospheric, and landscape conditions when determining the applicability of trees for stormwater control.Learn More
Stormwater Management Research in South Australia Water Down Under 94: Surface Hydrology and Water Resources Papers; Preprints of Papers. Bekele, Getachew; Argue, John R 1. Abstract: Research on storm runoff retention technology commenced in Adelaide in 1987 with studies on 'leaky' wells and gravel-filled trenches. Recent findings show that at least 80% of (clean) domestic roof runoff can be.Learn More
