Retrofit of an existing flood control facility to improve pollutant removal in an urban watershed
Levels of bacteria in excess of water quality standards for contact recreational designated use have been documented in Gilleland Creek, located in northeast Travis County, Texas. Stormwater monitoring showed increased ...
Performance comparison of stormwater biofiltration designs
A biofiltration system is a stormwater Best Management Practice (BMP) that uses a biologically active filtration bed to remove contaminants. This type of BMP is preferred because it provides the opportunity for pollutant ...
Modeling stormwater sewer systems using high resolution data
More than 54% of the world population lives in urban areas, and this percentage is projected to increase rapidly in future years. This growth significantly affects the hydrological cycle, which translates into social and ...
Analysis of stormwater runoff from permeable friction course
Recently, the Texas Department of Transportation began using Permeable Friction Course (PFC), a 5 cm overlay of porous pavement that is applied over conventional pavement. PFC was initially developed because it allows ...
