The article focuses on the completion of the Norman City, Oklahoma Storm Water Master Plan (SWMP) for the facilitation of efforts for reducing the dangers connected with flooding, protection of water quality and complying with state stormwater regulations. The Norman City SWMP employed hydrologic and hydraulic modeling approaches on the design flows by basing them on the assessments of 15 major watersheds. Estimated cost to address the 60 problems areas related to flooding which include stream erosion and water quality is 83 million U.S. dollars.
