Abstract: This paper discusses the critical planning and engineering components of a sound stormwater management ordinance and how they can be shaped to avoid commonly encountered basin-wide implementation problems. Successful implementation of a basin-wide stormwater management strategy can only be accomplished by paying careful attention to the content of a new basin-wide stormwater management ordinance, and by uniformly and rigorously enforcing the regulations contained in that ordinance. The developers of an ordinance must be specific enough in defining allowable approaches to preparing drainage plans that there is no question over the intent of the regulations or the means used to implement them.
