A continuation and reexamination of the state-of-the-art of storm and combined sewer overflow technology is presented. Essential areas of progress of the stormwater research and development program are keyed to the approach methodology and user assistance tools available, stormwater characterization, and evaluation of control measures. Results of the program are visible through current and ongoing master planning efforts. Assessment of urban runoff pollution is referenced to the developing national data base, localized through selective monitoring and analysis, and quantified as to potential source and magnitude using techniques ranging from simplified desktop procedures to complex simulation models. Stormwater pollutants are characterized by (1) source potential, (2) discharge characteristics, (3) residual products, and (4) receiving water impacts. Control and corrective measures are separated into nonstructural, termed Best Management Practices (BMPs), and structural alternatives. Best Management Practices focus on source abatement, whereas structural alternates roughly parallel conventional wastewater treatment practices of end-of-the-pipe correction. For combined sewer overflow abatement, increasing degrees of structural control is necessary. Successful program implementation is illustrated for several selected case histories.
