URBAN STORMWATER RUNOFF DATA FOR A RESIDENTIAL AREA, POMPANO BEACH, FLORIDA
This is the first of a series of four basic data reports on urban stormwater studies in a single-family residential area (41 acres of which 61% is pervious sod lawn and 39% is impervious roofs, driveways and streets). An automated instrumentation system monitored rainfall at three points and stage at two points in a flume located in the 36-inch diameter storm sewer. All data were recorded on an analog chart providing time-synchronous record. A sampling device consisting of a pump and sample distributor could collect as many as 24 water samples of storm water for water quality analyses. Bulk precipitation samples were obtained from a collector located in the roof of the instrument shelter. Details are given of the rainfall and runoff data, water-quality data, load data, and bulk-precipitaion data.
