From Divison of Water Quality, SWRCB – Communities in California fund stormwater management programs to prevent flooding and improve water quality. While stormwater management has been an important investment for decades, only a few studies have estimated overall municipal costs of stormwater programs and infrastructure in the state. As part of ongoing work to improve tools for stormwater management in California, the US Environmental Protection Agency’s Region 9 Environmental Finance Center at Sacramento State (EFC at Sacramento State) compiled sources of existing, readily available data on reported stormwater budgets and expenditures to provide an improved estimate of existing activities. The webinar will describe findings of the study and offer insights for improving future estimates of municipal stormwater management spending in California. (more).
