STATISTICAL MODELING OF URBAN STORM WATER PROCESSES, BROWARD COUNTY, FLORIDA

Statistical modeling has been performed utilizing storm-water data from a residential area and a transportation area in Broward County, Florida. Regression models were developed for runoff and seven major chemical constituent loads. Approximately 50 independent variables, including hydrological parameters, antecedent dry-period parameters, and time were utilized in the analysis. Peak discharge, and antecedent dry period in which 0.25 inch of rainfall accumulated, were the two most frequent variables to appear in the residential-area regression models. In the highway-area regression models, rainfall was the most frequent variable. The parameter, antecedent dry period required to accumulate 0.10 inch of rainfall, occured less frequently in the highway-area regressions perhaps because surface activity limited the accumulation of constituents with time. /Author/
