This thesis presents a model that serves as a tool to water resource and land development professionals that uses a simulation model and optimization algorithm to determine the near-optimal location for detention ponds in a proposed development. The thesis objectives were to (1) identify a platform for the integration of the simulation model and optimization algorithm that was also capable of modeling a topographic surface, (2) find a simulation model capable of modeling runoff and determining the storage volume required, (3) integrate the chosen model and couple it with the optimization algorithm, and (4) apply the model to a project site and evaluate the results of several model executions. The Technical Release 55: Urban Hydrology for Small Watersheds (TR-55) was chosen to be coupled with a genetic algorithm to find the near-optimal location of detention ponds that provide the required storage for the increase in runoff at the lowest cost.TR-55 was chosen as the simulation model for this project due to the simplicity of model input, cost effectiveness, and the ... of Input Data Input Data is Readily Available Manual Calculations Simplified No Continuing Development TR-55 Manual.
