This course focuses on the analysis of the hydrology and water quality of urban storm drainage systems, including their impacts on the receiving water systems. Students examine state-of-the-art practices for controlling runoff and water quality so that the hydrologic and ecologic impacts of urban development are minimized. The course includes training on, and extensive use of, the USEPA Stormwater Management Model (SWMM), The Hydrologic Modeling System (HEC-HMS) software and the Illinois Transient Model (ITM). Topics of this course include, urban hydrology and hydraulics, modeling of combined sewer overflows (CSOs), stormwater quality and receiving-water impacts, design of drainage systems, best management practices (BMPs), and computer modeling techniques.
