Using Rainwater to Grow Livable Communities

The approach to stormwater management in the United States has evolved from a focus on rapid conveyance and disposal of runoff to an emphasis on using natural systems to minimize hydrologic and pollutant impacts from developed areas. “Using Rainwater to Grow Livable Communities”, a project undertaken by the Water Environment Research Foundation, explored the benefits and key factors influencing the success of stormwater best management practices. In addition, the project developed a website to ease the integration of best practices into development projects.
