BMP Planning Utilizing Knowledge Engineering Techniques.
This chapter explores the possibilities of utilizing dynamic on-line documentation to assist with total catchment planning, which has recently become mandatory both in North America and Australia. The need to plan for improved drainage management for existing and increasing urbanisation, and to improve waterway environments has led to increasing pressures from government agencies through recent environmental legislation.
Since the early 1970s many numerical approaches have been utilized to model urbanising catchments and control structures to contain and manipulate storm drainage and its pollutants. Programs including the US EPA's Stormwater Management Model (SWMM) have been widely applied as primary tools to help researchers and engineers to understand and size required BMPS, channels, pipes and storage structures.
