From the Back Cover

A useful, interdisciplinary engineering approach to urban hydrology

Urban Hydrology, Hydraulics, and Stormwater Quality offers a unique, integrated engineering approach to controlling and managing the water resources of cities and urban communities. By addressing hydrologic analysis in the urban environment, using physically based methods, and focusing on stormwater quality, this interdisciplinary approach presents all aspects of urban hydrology more closely aligned to real-world practice than traditional hydrology books.

With an emphasis on application, this cutting-edge guide thoroughly covers urban watershed management, urban drainage system design, and stormwater quality management, complete with logic-driven questions reinforcing the fundamental, qualitative, quantitative, and extended application concepts discussed in each chapter. Relying heavily on numerical techniques addressed throughout the book, two of the most widely used computer modeling programs in the industry are presented:

  • The Corps of Engineers HEC-HMS model
  • The Environmental Protection Agency SWMM model

Urban Hydrology, Hydraulics, and Stormwater Quality is a great textbook for students in civil and environmental engineering, as well as a handy resource for professional civil engineers, hydrologists, urban planners, and environmental engineers.
