The result of extensive research, Innovative Urban Wet-Weather Flow Management Systems looks at how to handle runoff in developments of the 21st century: the conflicting objectives of providing drainage while decreasing stormwater pollutant discharges; the impact of urban WWF on surface and groundwater; sediment transport and the toxic effects of WWF on aquatic organisms; and the effectiveness of WWF controls. The book focuses on how source controls like biofiltration, created through simple grading, may work in newly developing areas, while critical source areas like an auto service facilities, may need more extensive treatment strategies.
