Description:

The problem of stormwater runoff management grows apace with continued urbanization, yet the management tools for this growning non-profit source problem have not fully kept pace. The rapid growth of stormwater utilities around the nation is an important step toward providing an effective institutional structure for stormwater management, but even within this relatively new structure, stormwater management will not be able to take advantage of cost-reducing technologies until this traditionally viewed non-point source problem is converted into a point source problem. The growing practice of lowering runoff fees charged individual property owners for those who provide on-site abatement is an important step in this direction.
