  Urban Wet-Weather Flows (EPA/600/JA-01/307) 2001

This paper contains reviews of urban wet-weather flow (WWF) literature published in 1999. The reviews were originally published in the annual literature review issues of Water Environment Research. Many reviewers are associated with EPA’s Wet-Weather Flow Research Program.

The field of urban wet-weather flow research has expanded dramatically in the United States probably because of increased interest in the National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System storm water permit program. There has also been increased awareness of the seriousness of urban WWF throughout the world. About 1,000 references are included in these reviews, indicating the magnitude of interest in this topic.

A large number of specialized storm water conferences are scheduled each year; plus there’s been an increase in the number of nonpoint source pollution sessions at large international conferences.

Major proceedings related to WWF include:

  • National Conference on Retrofit Opportunities for Water Resource Protection in Urban Environments, Chicago, IL
  • Comprehensive Storm Water and Aquatic Ecosystem Management, Auckland, New Zealand
  • Eighth International Conference on Urban Storm Drainage, Sydney, Australia
  • Water Environment Federation 72nd Annual Conference and Exposition, New Orleans, LA
  • American Society of Civil Engineers 26th Annual Conference, Water Resources Planning and Management, Tempe, AZ
  • American Water Resources Association’s 1999 Annual Water Resources Conference on Watershed Management to Protect Declining Species, Seattle, WA
  • New Applications in Modeling Urban Water Systems, Guelph, Canada
