This handbook, written by leading experts, is the most comprehensive, state-of-the-art coverage on the design of stormwater collections systems. The only work of it's kind, this authoritative and inclusive compendium brings you detailed coverage of the latest design methods and tools for analyzing stormwater collection systems. Each chapter provides expert, detailed, professional guidance on the important components of stormwater collection systems.


*Design procedures and detailed examples are presented for stormwater inlets, sewers, both in-line and off-line detention systems, infiltration systems, subsurface detention systems, pump facilities, and many more system components.

*New concepts for the design and implementation of distributed stormwater control and reuse and stormwater treatment using wetland systems are presented

*Specialized procedures for the removal of urban litter abd sediment movement in sewers are featured

*Design procedures and detailed examples are presented for drainage channels, flow transitions, and energy dissipates

*Many computer models are introduced that can be used in the design of various components of stormwater collection systems

*Water quality aspects of stormwater collections systems design are discussed

*Risk/reliability models for design and analysis are presented
