Environmental Finance Center - University of MarylandLocal Government Stormwater Financing ManualEFC’s Local Government Stormwater Financing Manual was inspired by and written for local government leaders. Public sector financing in general, and stormwater financing specifically often appear to be inaccessibly complicated and technical to even experienced public officials. Therefore, rather than try to address the myriad of issues associated with stormwater financing, the main strategy was to provide a foundation for local officials to move forward by focusing on perhaps the most important financing attribute: leadership and the ability to move communities towards effective action.--http://efc.umd.edu/localgovernmentstormwaterfinancingmanual.html

The costs of stormwater programs, increased by regulatory requirements (stormwater Phase I or Phase II), flooding concerns, water quality issues (including total maximum daily loads, or TMDLs) and population growth, may be subsidized through a stormwater utility or various other methods detailed in this document. -- www.epa.gov/region1/npdes/stormwater/assets/pdfs/FundingStormwater.pdf EPA New England—Thelma Murphy
