Title

The effect of urban detention on potential stream erosion

Abstract

"Stormwater detention basins have long been used to control peak discharges downstream of urban watersheds. And although these structures have proven to reduce peak flows significantly (thus reducing the possibility of flooding), they do nothing to control the increasing runoff volume caused by urban development. This increase in runoff volume has a substantial impact on erosion within the effected urban watershed. In this study, approximately 2.4 miles of existing urban chanstudied sutdied in order to find the effects that detention basins have on the potential for downstream erosion"--Abstract, leaf iii.
