The overall objective was to assess the feasibility of managing surface runoff from various suburban watersheds to meet suburban water demands. Definitive results were not anticipated from this study. Rather, a first-cut definition of an essentially uncharted area in suburban hydrology would be constituted. Although it appears technically possible to incorporate stormwater runoff into the suburban water resources arsenal, a number of key areas require additional information before the overall feasibility can be ascertained. First, information is needed on the current status of suburban social attitudes towards the re-use of stormwater and all that it implies. Second, certain modifications could be made to suburban watershed surfaces, and in man's use of them, with resultant higher quality runoff flows from these watersheds.
