A comprehensive investigation and assessment of promising, completed, and ongoing urban stormwater projects, representative of the state-of-the-art in abatement theory and technology, has been accomplished. The results, presented in textbook format, provide a compendium of project information on management and technology alternatives within a frame-work of problem identification, evaluation procedures, and program assessment and selection. Essentially every metropolitan area of the United States has a stormwater problem, whether served by a combined sewer system (approximately 29% of the total sewered population) or a separate sewer system. However, the tools for reducing stormwater pollution, in the form of demonstrated processes and devices, do exist and provide many-faceted approach techniques to individual situations. The most promising approaches to date involve the integrated use of control and treatment systems with an areawide, multidisciplinary perspective.
