Modelling of flow through gravel-filled trenches
(Taylor & Francis, 2007-12)
Today's standardized computer models for simulating flow through in-ground sustainable urban drainage systems (SUDS) require substantial monitoring data in order to allow for a realistic representation of system behaviour, ...
Modelling the outflow from a porous pavement
(Taylor & Francis, 2002-09)
The porous pavement of industrial and commercial areas is a form of sustainable urban drainage (SUD) system which has been developed to reduce runoff flow rates and volumes. This study reports on the modelling of the ...
The social impacts of stormwater management techniques
(IWA Publishing, 2006)
This paper presents the results of research into the social impacts of stormwater management techniques applied within urban environments. The main aim of the study was to compare public and professional attitudes of ...
Evidence of traffic-related pollutant control in soil-based Sustainable Urban Drainage Systems (SUDS)
(IWA Publishing, 2009)
SUDS are being increasingly employed to control highway runoff and have the potential to protect groundwater and surface water quality by minimising the risks of both point and diffuse sources of pollution. While these ...
Size distribution and diffuse pollution impacts of PAHs in street dust in urban streams in the Yangtze River Delta
(Elsevier B.V., 2009)
Particles of dust washed off streets by stormwater are an important pathway of polyaromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) into urban streams. This article presented a comprehensive assessment of the size distribution of PAHs in ...
Performance of family-size sequencing batch reactor and rotating biological contactor units treating sewage at various operating conditions
(IWA Publishing, 2000)
Field trials were carried out using two types of package units designed for the treatment of domestic sewage from individual households. One of the units was a commercially available rotating biological contactor (RBC) ...
Selecting SUDS in the Valencia Region of Spain
(IWA Publishing, 2012)
This paper reports on a study of the implementation of sustainable urban drainage systems (SUDS) in two Spanish towns (Xàtiva and Benaguasil) as part of the EU LIFE+ Project AQUAVAL, which has been conceived to introduce ...
Pollutional aspects of gross solids and their interaction with sewer sediments
(IWA Publishing, 1996)
This paper describes a study programme underway in the upper Perth Road catchment in Dundee to estimate the effect of gross solids and their interaction with the sediment found within a combined sewer network. Gross solids ...
Assessing the performance of urban BMPs in Scotland
Best Management Practices (BMPs) in urban drainage have been promoted in Scotland for a number of years in response to the need to combat pollution arising from diffuse sources m urban areas. This has led to the construction ...
01-CTS-21T, Post-project monitoring of BMPs/SUDS to determine performance and whole-life costs
(Water Environment Research Foundation (WERF), 2004)
