Portland, OR, has one of the oldest stormwater management programs in the country, and the thorough materials available to SFRs make the program highly accessible i. Further, Fort Myers offers zero outreach materials or manuals for rain garden design or construction. Lynchburg, VA, results in a windfall to the agency when the SFR does the bare minimum required to receive credit R.

Likewise, the relatively negligible loss in stormwater fee revenue to the agency may be the least expensive and perhaps only method of source control on SFR property. Although some programs may overcompensate residential ratepayers for SCMs with regard to the volume of stormwater abated by residential SCMs, this may still be a cost-effective approach for municipal stormwater management when compared to the cost of capital infrastructure, whether green or grey.
These estimates are total cost of infrastructure, not annual.
This suggests that credit programs have the capacity to function as an effective stormwater management tool, incenting SFRs to install SCMs on individual properties. Single property installation has been shown to increase the likelihood of neighboring SFRs to install an SCM via accrued social capital such as neighbor-to-neighbor interactions Green et al.
Likewise, for municipalities considering establishing a credit program but limited in the resources available to develop R. For example, an SFR owner could simply run their proposed SCM through the Calculator and submit the results to the agency, who may offer conditional approval to receive some proportion of credit based on the projected reduction in annual runoff, subject to post-construction site inspection. Notably, the software does not prevent zealous homeowners from placing too many SCMs too close to each other or to their house.
Caution should be taken when integrating such a tool as the Calculator. Findings also indicate a persistent gap between the percentage of annual runoff reduced and the percentage of fee reduced, although programs were not necessarily designed to equate the two. Minimum treatment requirements in Lynchburg VA and Portland OR are shown to provide a higher reduction in runoff than constituted in the discount. Florida, USA. Oregon, USA.

New York: Phosphorous pollution is a serious threat to waterbodies. Excessive amounts turn waterbodies green with algae, impacts drinking water supplies, and kills fish due to a lack of oxygen. In , the New York Legislature addressed the issue by banning household dishwater detergents that contain phosphorous. Similar bans have been enacted in 16 other states, forcing detergent makers to redesign their products to produce low-phosphate formulas.
In , New York also joined 11 states to ban phosphorous fertilizers. We highlight a small handful of those policies that seek to create incentives to remove pollutants at the source or to take steps to restore the natural ability of watersheds to do so. By focusing on both behaviors and technical solutions, these policies reduce polluted runoff while also reducing costs of implementation and creating additional benefits beyond pollution mitigation. The promise of these new policies provides extensive societal benefits, more flexibility, and even benefits for the polluter, either through financial incentives or by encouraging behaviors that yield local as well as watershed and coastal benefits.
