Many investigators have identified the urban environments as those producing high levels of water pollutants relative to other land uses. In a 59 hectare (146 acre) urban watershed in Orlando, Florida, the stormwater system discharges to an 11 hectare (27 acre) lake. The lake water quality is characterized by frequent algal blooms, odor, and in general, reduced recreational activities. The lake is one of the focal points of the City's recreational/social programs. Stormwater management procedures were established based on the runoff sampling program and a target mass pollutant reduction of stormwater runoff with special emphasis on phosphorus. Management of stormwater for the removal of phosphorus was accomplished by diversion for retention (filtration) of the first flush of pollutants.
