Abstract: The continuing increase in the population of the nation's coastal areas is placing additional stress on coastal aquatic systems faster than it can be reduced through improved wastewater management practices. One of the pollution sources is urban runoff. The cost of removing pollutants from runoff in existing urbanized areas is extremely expensive; possible cost savings can occur if future wastewater management planning will jointly consider stormwater and wastewater in developing plans and programs for protection of coastal receiving water environments.
