A GIS based decision support system for the implementation of Stormwater Best Management Practices

  title={A GIS based decision support system for the implementation of Stormwater Best Management Practices},
  author={Christophe Viavattene and Lian N. L. Scholes and D. Mike Revitt and John Bryan Ellis},
Whilst there is increasing interest in the use of stormwater Best Management Practices (BMPs) amongst policy makers, concern is expressed that a lack of shared knowledge by stakeholders unfamiliar with these systems could negatively influence the decision makingprocess in public participation sessions. To facilitate understanding and to enhance transparency relating to the development of sustainable urban drainage strategies, a wide range of technical, environmental and socio-economic criteria…

The concept of sustainable urban drainage systems (SuDS) is increasingly recognised as a valuable approach to flood risk mitigation and urban landscape planning. Many European cities are considering

The application of a GIS-based BMP selection tool for the evaluation of hydrologic performance and storm flow reduction

A GIS-based BMP tool has been developed within the EU-funded SWITCH project to enable stakeholders to identify appropriate BMPs and their locations to facilitate the control of urban runoff and to

Derivation of Economic and Social Indicators for a Spatial Decision Support System to Evaluate the Impacts of Urban Development on Water Bodies in New Zealand

There is mounting evidence that urban development in New Zealand has contributed to poor water quality and ecological degradation of coastal and fresh water receiving waters. As a consequence, local


A sustainable development approach to stormwater management involves taking into account the social, economic, and cultural wellbeing of people and communities as well as maintaining and enhancing

Risk Assessment and Control Approaches for Stormwater Flood and Pollution Management

Integrated urban stormwater management (IUSM) must address pluvial flooding and diffuse pollution at varying temporal and spatial scales of operation in order to identify appropriate mitigating and

Coupling GIS with Stormwater Modelling for the Location Prioritization and Hydrological Simulation of Permeable Pavements in Urban Catchments

Permeable Pavement Systems (PPS) are an alternative to conventional paving systems that allow water to filter through their layers instead of running off them. They are structural source control
