Today's global challenges, like climate change and urbanization, combined with the growing population in urban areas have exposed conventional urban stormwater infrastructures to a great risk. Although an emerging need for a change in the urban stormwater managerial paradigm has shifted the decision-makers attention to add new objectives to the stormwater management traditional regulations, there are still limited proper solutions to accommodate the urban runoff dynamics over the watershed and enable an adaptive, distributed and sustainable control of stormwater infrastructures. These concerns can be resolved if intelligence is added to the conventional urban systems to balance the network flow dynamics and environmental demand. This paper provides a conceptual discussion to investigate a novel high-performance, adaptive, and intelligent stormwater control optimization architecture as a sustainable solution against the varying environment.
