Acknowledgments

NRDC gratefully acknowledges the United Stated Environmental Protection Agency for its support of stormwater education and technology transfer and the following organizations for their support of NRDC's stormwater policy efforts: Geraldine R. Dodge Foundation, Inc., and Victoria Foundation, Inc. As with all our work, the publication of this report would not have been possible without the support of NRDC's 400,000 members.

The authors would like to especially thank the many municipal officials, agency staff, organization representatives, stormwater researchers, consultants, academics, and community members who contributed information and insight to the case studies and research. Through our research, we found considerable existing local leadership addressing stormwater and related issues, a sincere dedication to resolving these issues, and a commitment to addressing them for the benefit of their communities.

NRDC would also like to thank the following research and legal assistants and volunteers for all their help and enthusiasm: Diane Bui, Aaron Cook, Linda Dempsey, William Dornbos, Isaac Flattau, Abby Gedansky, Susan Gordon, Joe Hirsch, Alicia Klat, Lynn Mandarano, Kevin Olson, Christine Oschmann, Kim Raby, Adam Thornbrough, Carmen Vonheim. NRDC would also like to acknowledge David Mason for helping to write and research Chapter 4. Special thanks also to NRDC staff Peggy Alevrontas, Everett Delano, Lawrie Mott, Raymond Rodriguez, Matt Raimi, and Laura Siegel for their assistance in researching, reviewing, and preparing this report, and to Sharene Azimi for the wonderful job she did coordinating the production of this report.
