Stormwater Financing Case Story: Shenandoah Valley, VA

EFC worked with the Northern Shenandoah Valley Regional Commission (NSVRC) to help several counties in the region address new state stormwater regulations that require each jurisdiction to develop (1) a stormwater ordinance, (2) a stormwater staffing plan, and (3) a stormwater financing strategy.  EFC examined the potential economic impact associated with stormwater best management practices for communities in the Northern Shenandoah Valley region, with the goal of providing data and analysis to enable the municipalities to make evidence-based decisions on where and how to invest limited stormwater resources.  EFC's analysis indicated that a regional approach to urban stormwater BMP implementation could benefit Northern Shenandoah Valley localities.
