ABSTRACT: Connecticut communities are facing significant changes to the way they are required to manage stormwater runoff. From mapping the municipal storm drainage system to calculating & tracking the percentage of directly connected impervious area, a good portion of these changes require the use of mapping. While some of these requirements are straightforward others will require new techniques and strategies. The regulations demonstrate how regulators are increasing rely on mapping to help direct and focus the activities of those they regulate. The UConn Center for Land Use Education and Research is working with communities to help them identify strategies for meeting these requirements efficiently and cost effectively. This session will highlight the new requirements, the challenges they pose to communities or varying sizes and capacities, and some of the strategies CLEAR has identified to help communities meet the new requirements.
