Summary of Institutional Issues

by D. Earl Jones, Wright Water Engineers Inc, United States,

Document Type: Proceeding Paper

Part of: Design of Urban Runoff Quality Controls


The paper presents a summary of three other papers presented at the meeting on institutional aspects of stormwater quality planning. The three papers represented views expressed by representatives of industry and a regulatory community as well as by consultants having a broad national overview of institutional water quality problems. The author concludes that the most important thrust evident from these presentations is emerging recognition that standards and regulations should realistically permit flexibility to respond sensibly to varying physical, biologic and economic conditions and needs, guided by common sense comparisons of benefits, costs, practicality and cost-sharing alternatives.
