Water quality criteria guiding the selection and design of stormwater management measures

A. I. Lawrence & B. C. Phillips
Effective protection and management of aquatic ecosystems and other water resource values requires the establishment of clear links between catchment land use and management practice and receiving water quality. This paper demonstrates an approach to translate the receiving water protection objectives (water quality guidelines) to sustainable catchment loads of key pollutants or stressors. By comparing these values with assessments of current and projected future loads it is possible to identify the pollutant or stressor reduction...
