Design of Urban Stormwater Controls promotes the protection of urban water resources by controlling stormwater runoff. Fully updated to address the paradigm shift in the way stormwater is viewed and managed, this Manual of Practice focuses on consolidating technologies to foster a convergence between traditional stormwater controls and green infrastructure. This authoritative resource explains how systems of stormwater controls can be designed to meet multidisciplinary objectives, including flood control; stream channel protection; groundwater recharge; water quality improvement; protection of public safety, health, and welfare; and multipurpose public benefits.

Topics include: effects of stormwater on receiving waters; performance goals for stormwater controls; unit processes and operations for stormwater control; selection criteria and design considerations; swales and strips; basins; filters and infiltrators; gross pollutant traps and mechanical operations; maintenance of stormwater controls; performance assessment; and analytical tools for simulation of stormwater controls.

This new Manual of Practice replaces Urban Runoff Quality Management, MOP 87/WEF FD-23 (1998).
