Document Type: Proceeding Paper

Part of: Design of Urban Runoff Quality Controls


Research, innovation, and structure performance are necessary components of an overall stormwater management program, but program success or failure rests on its institutional framework. Program elements such as problem definition, enabling legislation, regulations, and design criteria must clearly provide guidance and leadership to all impacted segments of the affected jurisdiction. In addition to those clearly stated objectives, other issues such as manpower, training, program funding, and structure maintenance must be addressed. Only If each of these elements receives adequate support can a successful stormwater management program be implemented.
