AbstractThe increase of imperviousness due to urbanization creates adverse effects on the hydrological and environmental processes in a catchment. The increase in impervious areas leads to a higher runoff peak flow and stormwater pollution, even for a short duration of low-intensity rainfall. The present study focuses on the Bivio Vela catchment, an urban catchment of Pavia in northern Italy. This paper emphasizes both experimental and modeling approaches to the rainfall-runoff process and pollutant dynamics on the catchment surface and in the combined sewer system, considering significant increases in impervious area. Recent and future catchment developments ca...
