While the negative impact of warm urban stormwater runoff on coldwater stream environments has been studied, little is known about the effect of urban stormwater best management practices (BMPs) on runoff temperature. A monitoring study was conducted from May through October of 2005, 2006, and 2007 in western North Carolina, along the southeastern extent of United States trout populations, to examine the effect of urban stormwater BMPs on runoff temperature. The monitoring sites consisted of a stormwater wetland, wet pond, and four bioretention areas. Runoff temperatures at all monitoring locations significantly (pMost infiltration models assume that there is an excess water supply at the soil surface and infiltration is limited by the ... infiltration volume when the infiltration capacity predicted by the Green-Ampt model was equal to the rainfall intensity. ... an infiltration model to address unsteady rainfall, where the ponding status at the soil surface may alternate numerous times. ... watershed scale to runoff volume measurements collected by the Agricultural Research Service for three storm events.
