Integrated Planning


Over the last 40 years, communities have been responding to a growing list of Clean Water Act regulatory mandates to improve the nation's water quality. Oftentimes taking on compounded wastewater and stormwater responsibilities, many communities are struggling to allocate dwindling resources to these many clean water efforts. EPA has recognized the regulated community’s need for flexibility, and developed its Integrated Municipal Stormwater and Wastewater Planning Approach Framework pdf button (Framework) in 2012. NACWA and its members have been working with EPA and state water regulators to ensure the Framework can be utilized by communities when appropriate.
