Short description: The available information on stormwater source control is fragmented and there is no exhaustive overview of structural and non-structural “Best Management Practices” (BMPs) which can be applied over various spatial scales in Europe. The DayWater Project aims to build a prototype of an adaptive decision support system (ADSS) related to urban stormwater pollution source control. This DSS will be adaptive to internal and external changes and used for stormwater which is treated locally in urban areas using various source control techniques such as detention and re-use, swales and soakaways, catch-basins, wetlands, ponds, porous paving etc. The DayWater project aims to deliver new insights into both technical and management fields. The main objectives of its technical work packages are pollution source control modelling, risk and impact assessment, evaluation of BMPs and ADSS design and production. DayWater deals also with management aspects, such as analysis of the decision making processes involving different stakeholders in stormwater control at a European scale, as well as stormwater management strategies.
