Abstract:

Grissom Air Force Base near Bunker Hill, Indiana, was selected for test applying, three stormwater simulation models 1 the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, STORM, 2 the EPA SWMM, and 3 a model AFRUM, developed by the Department of Civil Engineering, of the University of Tennessee for the U.S. Air Force. It was also the objective of the project to identify sources of stormwater runoff pollution, i.e., ground and air. A comparison of the stormwater models was coupled with a review of existing models and recommendations made as to which models should be used under what circumstances. Finally, the ability of AFRUM to be transferred to other Air Force bases was evaluated. The AFRUM computer users manual is presented in ESL-TR-80-29. Three small watersheds ranging from 70 to 276 acres were instrumented with continuous rainfall, streamflow, and water quality samplers and dustfall collection samplers. The models were utilized to simulate the observed storm hydrographs and pollutographs. A survey of ground and air sources coupled with air quality modeling was utilized to identify and delineate the relative contribution of ground and air sources.
