  National Conference on Retrofit Opportunities for Water Resource Protection in Urban Environments, Proceedings (321 pp, 3.46 MB) (EPA/625/R-99/002) July 1999

This national conference, cosponsored by EPA, Northeastern Illinois Planning Commission, and Illinois Environmental Protection Agency, was held February 9–12, 1998, in Chicago, Illinois. The conference focused on modifying existing storm water facilities to enhance water quality and retrofitting storm water drainage systems to add water quality components. These retrofits include practices that will slow runoff, remove sediment and nutrients, and provide a basis for restoring eroded stream channels.

The proceedings include 44 papers delivered at the conference. Focus areas include monitoring design, modeling, education, innovative technologies, and evaluation.
