The study was conducted to determine the causes and the extent of urban and suburban soil erosion and sediment problems, and to describe ways in which local communities can organize and implement effective sedimentation control programs. An evaluation is provided on the state-of-the-art of urban sedimentation control, and a series of research needs in the sedimentation field is cited. In addition, this report includes the 'Community Action Guidebook for Soil Erosion and Sediment Control' which describes methods by which local governments can organize, plan, finance, staff, and implement urban sedimentation control programs. Aspects of areawide approaches, legal authority, and public support for sedimentation control are discussed, and an action plan is outlined. It was found that soil erosion and sediment in developing areas is extensive, and that these problems pose significant threats to both soil and water resources. While many of the required technical means for controlling sedimentation problems already exist, new administrative approaches are needed which accommodate the diversity of interests and pressures associated with urban and suburban development.
