Urban Stormwater Runoff Under Changing Climatic Conditions

Document Type

Conference Proceeding


The urban stormwater systems are more vulnerable to the effects of climate change on hydrologic cycle. This study used the Climate information from the climate model data for the Las Vegas Valley. The Generalized Extreme Value method with the aid of L-Moment was used for the determination of change in design storm in the climate model predicted future climate. An existing HEC-HMS model with 6hr-100yr design storm information was implemented using the projected climate change information. The hydrologic simulations resulted in exceedance in the selected existing stormwater infrastructures, which were designed as per the current design standard.
