Stormwater Management Case Studies and White Papers

  1. White Paper: An Integrated Modeling Approach To Predict Flooding On Urban Basin
    3/9/2009

    Flooding on urban basins is intensifying due to rapid urbanization. Flooding primarily occurs because of drainage congestion of inland flow and/or over bank flow of river during severe rainfall event. Rapid urbanization is causing a major change in rainfall-runoff phenomenon and the drainage system as well. The overland flow pattern is becoming complex due to huge structural development, and therefore, the correct prediction of surface runoff is becoming a challenging issue.

  2. Performance Of A Conventional Surface Water Plant Using Mixed-Oxidants For Microflocculation And Final Disinfection
    1/20/2009

    The surface water source is from snow-melt and summer thunderstorm run-off from the mountains. This water is detained in McClure Reservoir (7876 ft elevation) and Nichols Reservoir (7483 ft elevation) upstream from the CRWTP, a conventional plant built in 1974 with a design capacity of 8 MGD. Because the City has limited surface water rights, and due to decreased demand, the treatment plant usually shuts down for 60 to 90 days during winter. The reservoirs thaw in spring and turn over in autumn, and during the summer rainy season, raw water turbidities may exceed 5 NTU. By MIOX Corporation

  3. Cudo Stormwater Products - Shaping The Future Of Water Quality
    1/16/2009
    Cudo Stormwater Products, Inc. has launched a new approach to stormwater management, improving upon established technology with an easy to install and maintain system that addresses underground stormwater storage, infiltration, treatment, and rainwater harvesting. This innovative solution can be integrated into pre-designed bioretention systems or customized for new applications. By Kristar Enterprises, Inc.
  4. Global Approach To Wet Weather Issues: Key Steps To An Improved Water Quality
    12/28/2008

    Wet Weather issues have evolved over the last generation. From an environmental side issue twenty years ago, they have gained the forefront of environmental concerns. This paper will present the key steps to achieve a global approach to Wet Weather issues. Each of the best management practices available have been ranked and reduced to critical steps that can be implemented sequentially in order to achieve an optimized global approach to wet weather issues.

    6/4/2008
    The Gerald R. Ford International Airport is a commercial Airport located a few miles southeast of Grand Rapids, MI. The Airport is home to some major carriers like Northwest, Continental, United, American, and Delta airlines
  6. Case History: IPSCO Steel Facility In Baytown, TX Installs Highland Tank Oil/Water Separators For NPDES Compliance
    5/7/2008
    The IPSCO Corporation was founded in 1956 as Prairie Pipe Manufacturing Company Ltd., originally making only pipe. Over the years the company has expanded to have facilities in five provinces in Canada and seven states in the United States. In 1984 the company officially changed the name to IPSCO Inc. IPSCO employs approximately 4,300 people and is currently North America’s #1 maker of steel plate and #3 for producing energy tubular products.

  8. Holding Back The Water - Southwest Florida Turns To VTScada For Critical Flood Control Systems
    5/6/2008

    Over 4.5 million people depend on the Southwest Florida Water Management District for water conservation and flood protection, especially during the six month hurricane season. Water conservation and flood control involves carefully holding and channelling surface water using a system of gates, canals, and reservoirs

    Located 20 miles east of Seattle,Washington, Redmond is home to 50,000 residents and many high-tech and biomedical companies, including Microsoft. Redmond’s downtown drainage area is dominated by commercial, industrial and roadway areas, with typical surface pavement contaminants such as metals, nutrients and sediments
  10. Case Study: Royal Environmental Systems And Water Tectonics Design State-Of-The-Art Stormwater Treatment System
    2/14/2008
    Located 20 miles east of Seattle, WA, Redmond is home to 50,000 residents and many high-tech and biomedical companies, including Microsoft. Redmond’s downtown drainage area is dominated by commercial, industrial, and roadway areas, with typical surface pavement contaminants such as metals, nutrients, and sediments. To help prevent stormwater runoff from harming local waterways, the city developed stringent stormwater regulations and sought a permanent stormwater treatment system that exceeded existing environmental guidelines
