Much will be said during this conference about the need for various structural and nonstructural approaches toward mitigating problems related to storm water quality and quantity management. The not so shocking conclusion of this paper is that both approaches entail a significant commitment of resources in terms of staff time, equipment, and capital. The shock comes when the engineering analyses are undertaken and the corrective actions planned without a parallel evaluation of how these programs will be funded. The fact remains that many jurisdictions do not have the financial resources necessary to undertake a comprehensive storm water management program.
