Assessment of Infiltration Based Urban Stormwater Management for Residential Land Development
MetadataShow full item record
This research established a statistically significant broad approach to assess the infiltration based stormwater management concept and its application to urban land developments. The study has developed an inventory and mapping of soil characteristics using field and laboratory tests, towards developing stormwater management strategy guidelines in selecting the best stormwater management strategies in urban land developments. The outcome of this study will be useful for scientific community, authorities and decision makers for sustainable land development
