A method was developed for determining the minimum cost sizes and locations of detention storage in urban watersheds. DBOPTE, an optimization model based on dynamic programming, was developed to optimize the size and location of detention storage. The method was applied to a 10 square mile hypothetical watershed for the Houston, Texas area. Different watershed shapes, land uses, flood frequencies, and drainage types were analysed for this application. (from authors' abstract)
