WEF Board Approves Stormwater Position Statement

On May 6, the Water Environment Federation (Alexandria, Va.) released a revised stormwater position statement recommending updates to the National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) stormwater program. The statement also outlines several recommendations for improved stormwater management, including use of a volume-based approach for stormwater treatment, support of green infrastructure, flexibility in the stormwater regulatory framework, consideration of climate change, and integration of a watershed-based approach to permitting. It also supports points consistent with several 2009 National Research Council recommendations, such as increased funding and support for monitoring efforts.
