This overview describes the major elements of the Urban Runoff Pollution Control Program. Problem Definition, User Assistance Tools, Management Alternatives and Technology Transfer are covered, including some of the highlights of the Program's future direction and products from over 150 of its research projects. References are cited for completed Program reports, ongoing Program projects, and in-house documents. Capital cost comparisons for storm and combined sewer control/treatment are given, along with a specific example of cost-effect solution for urban runoff pollution control by in-line storage in Seattle. In a study done in Des Moines, using a simplified receiving water model, four control alternatives were compared, considering cost and effectiveness in terms of a frequency of D.O. standard violations.
Includes bibliographical references (pages 63-90).
