Use of Continuous Simulation Watershed Models for Estimating Stormwater Detention Volumes in an Uncertain Future
« All Publications

Extreme precipitation events coupled with increased urbanization have resulted in an increasing amount of flooding damages in the last decade.

This presentation will describe the use of state-of-art continuous simulation models, such as such as Hydrological Simulation Program – FORTRAN (HSPF) for estimating stormwater detention volume. The presentation will also show how the use of such an approach would enable planners and engineers to "design for an uncertain future" with more confidence.
