NLC Leaders Laud Proposal to Fix Stormwater Management Regs


Kocheisen, Carol, Nation's Cities Weekly


Following intensive consultation with state and local governments and other interested parties, Transportation and Infrastructure Committee chair, Rep.

NLC was principally involved in development of the stormwater provisions of the new bill--provisions which would repeal the current stormwater management program for all cities and substitute a state-by-state process similar to one now used for controlling pollutants from non-point sources such as run-off from agricultural, sylvicultural and ranching activities.

Under the proposed revisions, states would be required to assess the rivers and streams within the state, determine which sources of pollution contribute to degradation of these water bodies or prevent attainment of water quality standards, and identify measures and programs to control pollution from stormwater run-off.

States would then be required to develop, in consultation with local governments, a management plan which would identify management practices and measure to reduce pollution from stormwater run-off with a view to attaining the goal of meeting water quality standards' within the next 19 years. …
