The Control and Treatment of Industrial and Municipal Stormwater Edited by Peter E. Moffa EPA's National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) permitting program was expanded in 1990 to include stormwater discharges. The broader NPDES regulation mandates that municipal drainage operations, industrial plants, and construction sites in large urban areas do the following: 1) identify potential sources of pollution resulting from their activity; 2) develop site maps to detail possible stormwater runoff areas; 3) take preventive measures to control pollutants from entering waterways; 4) monitor runoff; and 5) record these procedures to ensure compliance. If you're in charge of fulfilling the requirements of this regulation, your task becomes a lot easier when you rely on The Control and Treatment of Industrial and Municipal Stormwater. Written by experts in stormwater technology, this one-of-a-kind resource not only gives you the letter of the law in this area, but also the practices and methodologies needed to comply with it. The book, first gives you a concise overview of the NPDES, including its priorities and goals, the types of facilities that must obtain stormwater permits, the kinds of permit applications, and permit terms and conditions. It then details the steps involved in putting together a stormwater management model that can be used to determine the level of pollutants in the system before and after storms. With the aid of the model, you'll have the tools to accurately assess the physical/chemical, microbial, and aesthetic impacts of runoff into rivers, lakes, streams, estuaries, and other waterways. Finally, the book highlights the management control techniques you'll need to correct water pollution problems, including watershed area technologies and practices, source treatment, flow attenuation, and storm runoff infiltration strategies. Complete with extended case studies that demonstrate how these methodologies work in the real world, The Control and Treatment of Industrial and Municipal Stormwater is your best choice for ensuring effective stormwater pollution remediation and legal compliance.

The rapid conversion of land to urban and suburban areas has profoundly altered how water flows during and following storm events, putting higher volumes of water and more pollutants into the nation's rivers, lakes, and estuaries. These changes have degraded water quality and habitat in virtually every urban stream system. The Clean Water Act regulatory framework for addressing sewage and industrial wastes is not well suited to the more difficult problem of stormwater discharges. This book calls for an entirely new permitting structure that would put authority and accountability for stormwater discharges at the municipal level. A number of additional actions, such as conserving natural areas, reducing hard surface cover (e.g., roads and parking lots), and retrofitting urban areas with features that hold and treat stormwater, are recommended.

Completely updated with new listings and statistics throughout, this comprehensive resource goes beyond the current literature on local government performance measurement and provides benchmarks on more than 40 key topics against which performance can be assessed in all areas of operation. "Ammons has assembled a remarkable volume of benchmark data for a comprehensive range of municipal government services. Municipal Benchmarks will be of considerable help for municipalities in laying the groundwork for an accountable government." - Harry Hatry, The Urban Institute "I am delighted to see that ideas for advancing our industry are alive and thriving. Ammons's collection does an incredible service to every municipal manager in the country, and perhaps the world. These benchmarks clearly set standardized ways of looking at measuring the performance of municipal service delivery." - Ted Gaebler, City Manager, Rancho Cordoba, CA (co-author of Reinventing Government)
