With stormwater management being such an important part of new land developments in both the planning and design phases of a project, learning the fundamentals of this topic can go a long way toward your better understanding your project and why a significant part of your site has to be used for the collection and management of stormwater.
The following are two books I would recommend.
1) Stormwater Management for Land Development by Thomas A. Seybert
This is a great beginners guide to stormwater management design and includes plenty of illustrations.
2) Principles of Stormwater Management by Roger D. Griffin
This is a good book for those wanting a comprehensive reference involving stormwater management.
