A View from the Middle — Water Quality Act of 1987: Problems and Possibilites for the Design Professional

by Michael T. Llewelyn, Wisconsin Nonpoint Source Program, United States,

Document Type: Proceeding Paper

Part of: Design of Urban Runoff Quality Controls


Stormwater management has traditionally been viewed as a water quantity concern. The Clean Water Act requirement for future permitting of stormwater discharges will dramatically alter the engineering communities approach to stormwater management design since an increased emphasis will be placed on minimizing the physical, chemical and biological impacts of stormwater discharges to surface and ground water. State water quality agencies will be required to develop new approaches to permitting systems to accommodate stormwater management into municipal and industrial discharger's permits. Stromwater will not be viewed as a nonpoint source problem in the future. Additional aspects of the subject are discussed.
