A stand-alone working document, Stormwater Effects Handbook: A Toolbox for Watershed Managers, Scientists, and Engineers assists scientists and regulators in determining when stormwater runoff causes adverse effects in receiving waters. This complicated task requires an integrated assessment approach that focuses on sampling before, during, and after storms. The Handbook supplies assessment strategies, sample testing and collection methods, and includes illustrative figures and tables. The authors introduce an innovative design that can be tailored to address a wide range of environmental concerns, such as: ecological and human health risk assessments, water quality or biological criteria exceedences, use impairment, source identification, trend analysis, determination of best management practices, stormwater quality monitoring for NPDES Phase I and II permits and applications, and total maximum daily load assessments. They provide case studies to illustrate the effectiveness of this approach and the data that can be compiled. Containing reviews of emerging technologies that hold promise for more effective receiving water evaluations, this book gives you detailed information on selecting methods and carrying out comprehensive evaluations. It includes guidance for the experimental design measurements, as well as standard and advanced statistical methods for data evaluations. Despite the complexity of stormwater management, successful and accurate assessments of their impact are possible by following the integrated approaches described in Stormwater Effects Handbook: A Toolbox for Watershed Managers, Scientists, and Engineers.

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.

This volume offers concepts, methods and case studies of innovative and evolving technologies in the area of watershed assessment. Topics discussed include: (1) Development and applications of geospatial, satellite imagery and remote sensing technologies for land monitoring; (2) Development and applications of satellite imagery for monitoring inland water quality; (3) Development and applications of water sensor technologies for real-time monitoring of water quantity and quality; and (4) Advances in biological monitoring and microbial source tracking technologies. This book will be of interest to graduate students and researchers involved in watershed science and environmental studies. Equally, it will serve as a valuable guide to experts in government agencies who are concerned with water-availability and water-quality issues, and engineers and other professionals involved in the design of land- and water-monitoring systems.

The field of engineering is becoming increasingly interdisciplinary, and there is an ever-growing need for engineers to investigate engineering and scientific resources outside their own area of expertise. However, studies have shown that quality information-finding skills often tend to be lacking in the engineering profession. Using the Engineering Literature is a guide to the wide range of resources in all fields of engineering. The information age has greatly impacted the way engineers find information. While print is still important, resources are increasingly being made available in electronic formats, and the Web is now a major resource. Engineers have an effect, whether direct or not, on almost all aspects of our lives, and it is vital that they find the right information at the right time to create better products and processes. The book takes an engineering sub-discipline approach, detailing those resources that are most important for the practicing engineer and the librarians who work in engineering. Each chapter provides a short history and description of the discipline, then lists the most important resources by format: handbooks, dictionaries, texts, journals, websites, etc. Most references include a short annotation. The authors of each chapter are well-known, experienced librarians or faculty in the appropriate engineering discipline, sharing their expertise and experiences with engineering information. This is a guide to resources that are often unknown to the practicing engineer. It also serves as a textbook for the library school student or new engineering librarian, as well as a time-saving handbook for current librarians. The arrangement of materials provides easy and logical access to evaluated resources in engineering and supporting disciplines, providing a tool that is useful in reference services and collection development.

Use of a Stormwater Filtration Device for Reducing Contaminants in Runoff from a Parking Lot in Madison Wisconsin 2005 07

In June 2003, a proprietary stormwater filtration device (SFD) was installed at an employee parking lot in downtown Madison, Wisconsin. A total of 26 filter cartridges were used to treat stormwater runoff from the 0.91 acre asphalt parking lot. Automated equipment was installed to measure flow and collect water-quality samples during storms at the inlet, outlet, and bypass pipes of the SFD. Thirty-three organic and inorganic constituents or physical properties plus particle-size distributions were analyzed in samples from the inlet and outlet, 18 of which were polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs). Water-quality samples were collected for 51 runoff events from November 2005 to August 2007. Samples from all runoff events were analyzed for suspended sediment concentrations, whereas samples from 31 of the runoff events were analyzed for 15 of the constituents. Samples from 15 runoff events were analyzed for PAHs, and samples from 36 events were analyzed for particle size. The treatment efficiency of the SFD was calculated using the summation of loads (SOL) and the efficiency ratio methods. Constituents for which the concentrations and (or) loads were significantly decreased by the SFD include total suspended solids (TSS), suspended sediment, volatile suspended solids, total phosphorous (TP), total copper, total zinc, and PAHs. The efficiency ratios for these constituents were 44, 43, 38, 55, 22, 5, and 45 percent, respectively. The SOLs for these constituents were 32, 39, 28, 36, 23, 8, and 48 percent, respectively. Both the SOL and efficiency ratio were negative for chloride of about 20 percent. Six constituents or physical properties, dissolved phosphorous, chemical oxygen demand, dissolved zinc, total dissolved solids, dissolved chemical oxygen demand, and dissolved copper, were not included, because the difference between concentrations in samples from the inlet and outlet were not determined to be significant.

The treatment efficiency of two proprietary stormwater treatment devices was tested at a freeway site in an ultra-urban part of Milwaukee, Wis. One treatment device is categorized as a hydrodynamic settling device (HSD) that removes pollutants by sedimentation and flotation. The other treatment device is categorized as a stormwater filtration device (SFD) that removes pollutants by filtration and sedimentation. During runoff events, flow measurements were recorded and water-quality samples were collected at the inlet and outlet of each device. An efficiency ratio and summation of loads (SOL) calculation were used to estimate the treatment efficiency of each device. Most constituents showed a reduction in average concentration and total load leaving the device, but a few constituents, especially dissolved ones, showed an increase in concentration and load at the outlets. The efficiency ratios for the HSD tend to be higher than the SOLs. In contrast the efficiency ratios and SOLs are about the same for the SFD.
