Potential Impacts on Receiving Watersby Robert K. Bastian, US EPA, Washington, DC, USA,
Abstract: As a discrete source of water-borne pollutants that are discharged to receiving waters, urban stormwater runoff can be and has been in specific instances a source of water quality problems. Insight into where urban runoff fits among the sources of water pollution and potential water quality impacts that may result from urban runoff, as well as reactions to some of the scientific and regulatory implications that may well face the management of urban runoff in the future, are discussed in relation to experience with other programs aimed at controlling water pollution.
