Other stormwater control practicesare covered as well.

The initial parts of the book provide background on urbanhydrology, water quality and runoff. While most of the bookfocuses on stormwater control and improvement via a suite ofdifferent technologies and techniques. Background informationon unit processes for affecting the water balance and improvingwater quality is presented. The last chapters providespecific details on categories of stormwater control measures, specifically addressing topics such as selection, design, performance, and maintenance.
