Urban runoff: getting to the nonpoint

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Mandates for water-quality improvement have forced regulators and planners to confront the problem of urban runoff, still an important source of water pollution. This article discusses those mandates and how to meet them, and provides examples of ongoing nonpoint water pollution control programs in the San Francisco Bay Area. These examples suggest that cleanup or urban runoff may require more comprehensive regional planning to encourage a development pattern conducive to pollution control. -Author
