Urban Watershed Management: Flooding and Water Quality

 

Urban Watershed Management: Flooding and Water Quality

Urban Watershed Management: Flooding and Water Quality
Peter G. Rowe

A presentation of the then current methods of measuring, modeling and managing urban watershed problems. Contributions vary with regard to disciplinary background, including hydrology, water quality, land-use planning, data base management, watershed modeling, drainage design, floodplain management, economics and law. Several case studies exemplify multidisciplinary research efforts among these fields. Concern over floodplain use and nonpoint sources of pollution is widespread, and there is currently much debate over structural and nonstructural approaches to flooding and water quality control. Indeed, many of the papers in this collection address themselves to these issues.
