This study analyzes the contribution of four constructed surfaces types – roofs, yards, roads, and an international airport – to surface runoff within the Kylmäoja stream watershed, Southern Finland and presents the development over five decades (1977−2030). The conducted imperviousness analysis allows the evaluation of land-use development impacts on the stream network, and the identification of hydrologically active areas for urban planning and stormwater management. Research reveals the importance of yard imperviousness related to suburban residential housing for stormwater runoff generation, and the impacts of transport-related imperviousness on stormwater runoff
