Abstract

This study presented the conceptual framework of the water-management analysis module (WMAM) to derive effective physical specifications for the design and planning of low-impact development (LID) practices using the storm-water management model (SWMM). This decision-support system can be used for six LID types and has the following key capabilities: determining relevant LID design parameters within the SWMM that critically influence the hydrological cycle components using a simple sensitivity analysis and determining the best hydrological values for LID planning specification. This study analyzed a highly urbanized university campus as a case study to determine the design and planning specifications for an infiltration trench and permeable pavement. In addition, the performance of different LID practices during high-intensity rainfall events was compared. The results indicate that the WMAM can be very useful in determining many LID design and planning parameters. View Full-Text
