WinSLAMM (Source Loading and Management Model for Windows) is the only Urban Stormwater Quality Model that evaluates runoff volume and pollution loading for each source area within each land use for each rainfall event. It does not lump impervious areas together nor does it lump all the areas in a single land use together. Evaluation at the source area level allows stormwater quality professionals the ability to target the highest loading areas and recommend improvements to reduce runoff volume and pollution loading from those areas.
