Urban Stormwater Management Tools
by Larry W. Mays

Urban Stormwater Management Tools presents material on the design of basins and detection systems for managing stormwater flow in urban environments and on subsurface and wetland issues, and provides a complete methodology for regulating sewer overflow.

Urban Stormwater Management Tools is a reference for engineers, managers, operators, and analysts involved with various aspects of urban stormwater systems.
