System for Urban Stormwater Treatment and Analysis Integration (SUSTAIN)

SUSTAIN is a decision support system was developed to: assist stormwater management professionals in developing implementation plans for flow and pollution control to protect source waters and meet water quality goals, assist watershed and stormwater practitioners to develop, evaluate, and select optimal BMP combinations at various watershed scales on the basis of cost and effectiveness. SUSTAIN is a tool for answering the following questions: How effective are BMPs in reducing runoff and pollutant loadings? What are the most cost-effective solutions for meeting water quality and quantity objectives? Where, what type of, and how big should BMPs be? SUSTAIN was developed by Tetra Tech, an environmental engineering and consulting service.
