Abstract : The Hydrologic Engineering Center hosted a workshop on urban hydrology and hydraulics on 13 - 15 September 1994. The workshop consisted of four sessions: Corps perspective, hydrology, hydraulics, and modeling methods. Twenty-six papers were presented. The participants included representatives from the Corps and the USGS, private consulting industry, academia, and state and local agencies. The major objective of the workshop was to bring together software developers and users to discuss use of existing models, as well as the needs for future models. These proceedings are intended as a means of sharing the experiences of the participants in dealing with a variety of urban hydrology and hydraulics modeling issues. Ideally, lessons learned, or standard procedures could be extracted and converted into guidance for future urban work. Although there is a portion of urban hydrology for which this can occur, the varied nature of urban studies is such that creative, never-before-done solutions will always be needed. Therefore, summaries of the proceedings are included that attempt to draw together the quantifiable notions from the papers, while the papers themselves serve as a library of creative solutions to the unique elements in each study.
