The report presents the verification and testing of a comprehensive mathematical model, capable of representing urban storm water runoff to assist administrators and engineers in the planning, evaluation, and management of overflow abatement alternatives. Hydrographs and pollutographs (time varying quality concentrations or mass values) were generated for real storm events and systems from points of origin in real time sequence to points of disposal (including travel in receiving waters) with user options for intermediate storage and/or treatment facilities. Both combined and separate sewerage systems may be evaluated. Internal cost routines and receiving water quality output assisted in direct cost-benefit analysis of alternate programs of water quality enhancement. Demonstration and verification runs on selected catchments, varying in size from 180 to 5,400 acres, in four U.S. cities (approximately 20 storm events, total) were used to test and debug the model.
