Abstract The purpose of the study is to provide a procedure to enable prediction of storm water pollution from land activity, precipitation and runoff in an urban area. The procedures presented in the study will enable the city planner and civil engineer to predict quantitative and qualitative pollution loads resulting from surface storm water runoff to a receiving stream. The study presents ten mathematical models for this purpose and evaluates them by application to several selected demonstration cities. Also presented are criteria for pollution control strategies and for assessment of various structural and nonstructural control measures, their general effectiveness and costs. Guidelines are discussed for the use of these procedures and development of an optimal water pollution control plan. The study concludes that: (1) storm water pollution prediction models are feasible but of limited application unless adequate data are available on hydrological, precipitation and runoff characteristics, as well as land activity detail for representative metropolitan areas, and (2) storm water pollution control for most effectiveness should relate to the specific characteristics of an urban area. Maximum economies will derive from pollution abatement measures taken during the early stages of area development. (Author)
