This research focuses on the ability of a stormwater storage tank SWST to mitigate the pollution impact of a storm sewer discharge into the natural environment. This investigation simulates the rainfall-runoff process and the pollutant dynamics on theoretic catchments for a period of one year using US EPA Storm Water Management Model. The functioning of a SWST is modelled at the final reach of the storm sewer network. Particularly, different insertions in the storm sewer network (with and without storm sewer overflow), volumes (m3 per impervious hectare), filling and empting cycles (continuous and intermittent) of the tank are considered. The result of this study represents a key issue for the implementation of environmental policies in large urban areas.

Abstract

This research focuses on the ability of a stormwater storage tank SWST to mitigate the pollution impact of a storm sewer discharge into the natural environment. This investigation simulates the rainfall-runoff process and the pollutant dynamics on theoretic catchments for a period of one year using US EPA Storm Water Management Model. The functioning of a SWST is modelled at the final reach of the storm sewer network. Particularly, different insertions in the storm sewer network (with and without storm sewer overflow), volumes (m3 per impervious hectare), filling and empting cycles (continuous and intermittent) of the tank are considered. The result of this study represents a key issue for the implementation of environmental policies in large urban areas.
