Part of: Design of Urban Runoff Quality Controls


Planning and implementation of programs to control the quality of stormwater runoff in urban areas are carried out within institutional frameworks that directly influence the effectiveness of the programs. Case studies in six metropolitan areas across the United States point out the differing motivations, responsible agencies, and control types that can be encountered in water quality planning for urban runoff and the way the framework within which that planning occurs can enhance or detract from successful implementation.
