Green Stormwater Infrastructure Fundamentals and Design
This book focuses on novel stormwater control measures (SCMs)and related technologies for the reductions of detrimental impactsfrom urban stormwater. Many of these SCMs are nature-basedand are considered as part of a green infrastructure that mayinclude bioretention, vegetated swales, vegetated filter strips, green roofs, and wetlands. 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. The book contains many photographstaken by the authors and many diagrams developed by theauthors. End-of-chapter problems are included with a separatesolutions manual.
