Abstract/Description or Keywords We implemented a stormwater monitoring program in 1996. Since then, we've collected stormwater flow and rainfall data and some limited water quality information at numerous sites throughout Surrey.

We collect this data so we can use it to meet requirements of various programs in the City, like

to calibrate hydrologic models for selected catchments using reliable rainfall and flow data,
to establish baseline conditions and benchmarks for future comparisons,
to give background information for updating polices and design criteria and standards,
to provide quick analysis of significant rainfall events and response to flooding events, and
to be used in studies involving sanitary inflow and infiltration, stormwater, Low Impact Developments initiatives, fisheries, and water quality.
We collect and store this data on FlowWorks (Website. New window.), a web-based data server that provides data collection, reporting and flow analysis tools. The data from the monitoring program is analyzed and summarized annually.
