Non-Point Source Water Pollution [electronic resource]: Focus on Stormwater

Wild Hare Productions LLC
Video; Computer Resource; Online Video; Online
First-flush runoff from a rainstorm can be as bad, in quality, as raw sewage. What are municipalities doing about it? In this program, Ray Allen, executive director of Coastal Bend Bays Estuaries Program; stormwater engineer Valerie Gray; and many others discuss the positive effects of governmental regulations, stormwater management projects, and runoff purification initiatives. The establishment of stormwater utilities, increased monitoring and testing, the retrofitting and upgrading of storm drain and sewer systems, and the engineering of surge ponds are examined. School- and community-based educational outreach is reinforced.
