PREFACE Large rainfall and snowmelt events cause numerous water
management challenges in both urban and rural areas. In urban areas, these
events cause stormwater runoff, which results in a variety of impacts on receiving
waters, including flooding, geomorphologic changes, pollution, ecosystem
degradation and impairment of beneficial water uses. To prevent or mitigate such
impacts, stormwater management has been introduced and implemented
through a system of ...

URBAN. RUNOFF. QUALITY. CONTROL. Since 1990's, the urban stormwater
management has rapidly changed from the conventional approach on flood
mitigation to a focus on urban runoff quality control. The 1987 Federal Water
Quality Act is a reflection of the public's support for improvements on urban water
environment, and such legislation gives new directions to urban runoff
management. In the Unites States, governments and industries have a mandate
from Congress to ...

Furthermore, in ultra-urban environments, the lack of open spaces, occupation of
flood plains, and high population densities decrease flood control measure
alternatives. Therefore, source control techniques can be an interesting option for
flood mitigation. This paper presents a discussion about the use of on-site
stormwater detention tanks, based on the comparison of hydraulic design criteria
and different patterns of spatial arrangements and coverage due to public
acceptance and ...

... removal of carbon from the atmosphere, mitigation of stormwater runoff, and
flood control, to mention a few, but urban vegetation also provides important
social functions in terms of aesthetic values and community well-being (Bolund &
Hunhammar 1999; Alberti 2005; Hope et al. 2006; Cilliers et al. in press). Several
studies of changes in the diversity, composition, and cover of urban flora and
vegetation have been undertaken. These indicate that most cities have a higher
total plant ...
