Levee sump systems are used by many riverine communities for temporary storage of urban wet weather flows. The performance and transport of stormwater pollutants in sump systems, however, have not been systematically studied. Although flow of stormwater through a sump system is regulated solely by flood-control requirements, these sumps may function as sedimentation basins that provide purification of stormwater. The objective of this paper is to present a case study of stormwater and sediment… CONTINUE READING
