Stormwater Financing and Outreach

 

Effectively managing stormwater is one of the greatest challenges faced by communities throughout the Chesapeake Bay region.  Like all infrastructure, stormwater management systems, including low impact development practices, require long-term care and maintenance.  As communities struggle to best allocate limited resources, stormwater management systems are frequently overlooked until an emergency occurs, costing millions in damages and repairs, or until a mandate forces a community to take action. The Stormwater Financing and Outreach Unit was created to address a community’s stormwater financing questions and help craft a strategy that best meets local needs.  ▶ Learn More
