Excerpts:

The South Florida Water Management District (District) has prepared the primary course document to increase public awareness about the management of urban stormwater runoff and how best management practices (BMPs) can be used to improve water quality. The document provides a general overview of stormwater runoff, the sources affecting water quality, and what can be done to improve the quality of stormwater discharges. This document serves as an important educational tool designed to describe the various opportunities for improving water quality in urban areas of South Florida.

Rapid urbanization impacts natural flowways and affects water quality and quantity. As an area develops, undisturbed pervious surfaces become impervious due to the construction of parking lots, buildings, homes, streets, and other structures. This increase in impervious surfaces results in increased stormwater runoff, which is the water that flows over the land during and immediately after storm events. The increase in stormwater runoff disrupts the natural balance of physical, chemical, and biological processes. It causes pollution in natural systems and results in soil erosion that creates damage downstream. It reduces the infiltration of water into the ground. In addition, the increase in runoff discharging through existing drainage systems may cause flooding.

Engineer Learning Objectives:

  • Understand stormwater management for urban areas
  • Learn the sources of pollutants in urban stormwater runoff
  • Gain knowledge of the constituents of pollutants in urban stormwater runoff
  • Methods of quantifying pollutants in urban stormwater runoff
  • Feasibility screaning for urban BMP selection
  • Nonstructural BMP options
  • Structural BMP options
  • Identify opportunities for BMP implementation
