Most utilities and local governments are facing budget reductions and downsizing their operations. In addition, existing and potential new regulatory requirements at the state and federal level will require an innovative and creative approach to regulatory compliance at the local level. This approach integrates multiple regulatory requirements and leverages data and limited funding from different programs in order to achieve total water resources management.

Successful integration has been driven in some cases by a specific requirement, such as stormwater management permits or source water protection needs. However, as programs evolve, other regulatory and local requirements, such as Total Maximum Daily Loads (TMDLs) or protection of great water bodies (e.g., Chesapeake Bay, Great Lakes), can be integrated into established programs facilitating implementation, data sharing, and stakeholder buy-in. A simple framework that identifies common goals, provides targeted outreach, and presents practical solutions typically results in implementable water resources management plans.
