Part of: Urban Runoff Quality: Impact and Quality Enhancement Technology


The Wisconsin nonpoint source program is becoming more heavily involved in urban runoff controls. About 3 million of state cost sharing money has already been allocated to controlling urban runoff in the three watershed plans containing urban elements. At least 10 to 15 million of state money will be used in Milwaukee projects. The development of efficient urban inventory and analysis procedures has become a high priority item in the nonpoint source program. Extensive use of previous urban runoff research results, the development of a source oriented urban runoff model, and monitoring special urban runoff control demonstration projects have all been recently used in the nonpoint source program. Actual watershed assessment monitoring activities will also be used.
