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.

This comprehensive resource provides engineers, managers, compliance specialists, construction professionals, and students with the tool they need to understand and comply with the requirements of the Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) Title 40 Chapter 122 stormwater regulations. Stormwater Discharge Management covers the full spectrum of stormwater issues, including stormwater regulations, NPDES permitting, minimum control measures, activities-based discharges, overflows, stormwater monitoring, stormwater enforcement strategy, and the new Stormwater Phase II Rule, which mandated compliance March 10, 2003. Readers will learn who meets the criteria for compliance under this rule and how compliance can be achieved in construction activity, agricultural activity, and marine activity. To help simplify the process, the authors identify each and every compliance requirement, from examining the different types of stormwater discharge permits to writing an effective Stormwater Pollution Prevention Plan (SWPP). They also include actual EPA field enforcement practices and best management practices to help readers ensure compliance success. Readers will gain a clearer appreciation for the stormwater regulations by reviewing the objectives of the Clean Water Act, the purpose and requirements of the National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES), and the types of discharges/facilities affected by the laws.

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.
