Title

Impacts of urbanization on stream stability

Author

Abstract

"The aim of this research is to investigate the effective discharge of urban streams using an Erosion Potential Based approach. The urban streams selected for this study are Fishpot and Fee Fee Creek in St. Louis. A six step method was adopted to compute effective discharge which includes creating design storms then running the SWMM model with three different sets of parameters values to simulate conditions in the watershed in the existing (1998), future (2010), future with detention (2010)...A secondary aim will be to study geomorphic parameters of urban streams and find the effects of detention basins on the effective discharge"--Abstract, leaf iii.
