Re-Inventing Urban Hydrology

Re-Inventing Urban Hydrology- Going Back to Basics to Develop New Tools By Kim A. Stephens PEng, KSA Consultants LTD, and Thomas N. Debo PhD, Georgia Institute of Technology From the introduction: “British Columbia is leading the way in North America in developing and implementing innovative approaches, criteria and tools for reducing stormwater runoff volumes at the source, where rain falls. Through Stormwater Planning: A Guidebook for British Columbia, science-based performance targets have been established for designing individual sites and entire neighbourhoods to function hydrologically as though they are still naturally forested. Getting to this point has involved the re-thinking of traditional approaches to urban hydrology and computer modelling.” Click on the link below to learn more about this volume based approach and the development of the Water Balance Model.
