Stormwater quality regulation seems to be ever more prescriptive with ever increasing costs for both municipalities and developers. There is great uncertainty in budgeting for stormwater programs on a municipal level, and costs for land development are increasing as more land must be dedicated for treatment devices and more analysis completed to obtain environmental permits. It is unclear if the current path we are on is sustainable (from a cost perspective) and effective. We will explore some of the current regulatory initiatives and cost drivers in this discussion, and also look at a long-term solution for stormwater quality.
