Effects of four catchment modifications on urban runoff
Urbanization often produces detrimental impacts on receiving stream ecology due to an increased volume and velocity of storm runoff. The hydrologic effects of urbanization, including: increases in bankfull events, increased flooding, increased peak flows, decreased baseflow, stream enlargement, stream incision, severe stream bank erosion, sedimentation, changes in morphology, increased instream sediment load, increased sediment transport, aesthetic degradation, degradation of designated uses, and loss of fish populations. The purpose of this study is to determine how different physical characteristics ...
