Résumé
In rapidly growing urban areas of the arid Southwest, increasingly larger proportions of paved surfaces heighten both stormwater runoff rates and their volume. Retainment of runoff within new land developments is now required by many cities. This study looks at policies and design specifica tions that enable neighborhood-scale flood control facili ties to be utilized as recreational amenities. Its major objective is to exhibit an expanded range of design solutions that encourage "dual-use," in the form of a design guidelines manual aimed toward engineers, landscape architects, and other design professionals.
