Developed by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and ICF International, January 2006. To comply with the Clean Water Act, more than 6,000 communities are developing municipal stormwater permitting programs. Many of these communities also are redeveloping vacant properties, promoting transportation options, and facilitating efficient use of land and infrastructure. This report reviews common smart growth techniques and examines how they can be used to prevent or manage stormwater runoff. This publication will help communities meet the new regulatory requirements.
