||The original USEPA Storm Water Management Model (SWMM) provides a detailed simulation of the quantity and quality of stormwater during a specified precipitation event lasting a few hours. This model is widely used. However, it is too detailed for many purposes. In response to this need, four levels of stormwater management models are being prepared. This volume presents a 'desktop' procedure to compare selected alternative control technologies. A graphical procedure is described which permits the analyst to examine a wide variety of control options operating in series with one another or in parallel. The final result is presented as a control cost function for the entire study area which is the optimal (least costly) way of attaining any desired level of control. This methodology is applied to Anytown, U.S.A., a hypothetical community of 1,000,000 people.
