The purposes of this study were to test, refine and augment the capabilities of the EPA Storm Water Management Model (SWMM), and to develop decision-making capabilities for use in the study of urban stormwater runoff problems. A sediment prediction capability has been incorporated directly into the SWMM. Detailed testing was conducted in Lancaster, Pennsylvania to demonstrate the ability of the SWMM to describe the relatively complex phenomena occurring in an urban catchment. A systematic procedure is presented for examining the stormwater management problem in the broader context of urban water resources management. Related standards for flood control and drainage, street and parking lot design, etc., are reviewed and suggestions presented regarding modifications in practices which would ameliorate stormwater problems. An optimization procedure is described which addresses the related problems of finding efficient and equitable control strategies. Also, the use of the SWMM for preliminary hydraulic design of sewer systems is described.
