Description:

This document is the user's guide for running EPA's National Stormwater Calculator (http://www.epa.gov/nrmrl/wswrd/wq/models/swc/). The National Stormwater Calculator is a simple to use tool for computing small site hydrology for any location within the US.

Purpose/Objective:

Stormwater discharges continue to cause impairment of our Nation’s waterbodies. Regulations that require the retention and/or treatment of the frequent, small storms that dominate runoff volumes and pollutant loads are becoming more common. EPA has developed a desktop application, the National Stormwater Calculator, to help support local, state, and national stormwater management objectives in this regard.
