Necessary data are not available in most areas to determine or predict distributions of storm water runoff and combined sewage flows and pollutant concentrations. To alleviate this problem, a procedure was developed to permit rapid, economical, and accurate assessments of system performance based on 3 different and important water quality criteria. The first criterion establishes an absolute maximum pollutant concentration which cannot be exceeded. The second criterion establishes an acceptable distribution of pollutant concentration by specifying the greatest frequency of occurrence for a particular concentration value. The third criterion establishes the maximum acceptable excession frequency for a particular pollutant frequency. A computer model was then used with a modified rational runoff method to perform preliminary design tasks and weigh alternatives to the designs. Then the least costly system developed for the Sacramento, California area as an example

In November 1941 HMAS Sydney, the pride of Australia's wartime fleet, and its crew of 645 disappeared without a trace off the Western Australian coast. All that was known was Sydney had come under fire from the German raider HSK Kormoran, which also sank. After numerous unsuccessful searches from the mid 1970s onwards, the Finding Sydney Foundation was set up and in March 2008 one of Australia's greatest maritime mysteries was solved when both wrecks were finally discovered. The Search for HMAS Sydney pieces together the incredible story of Sydney, its crew and the families left behind. It details the innovative and powerful research procedures implemented by the Foundation to locate the wrecks of Sydney and Kormoran, their discovery and the detailed forensic analyses and commemorations that followed
