Using a triple-bottom-line approach and extensive input from utility stakeholders, this project will synthesize holistic wet weather management strategies through adaptive volume and pollutant source control at varying scales. Strategies will be geospatially analyzed across multiple EPA regions to provide a decision-support framework for utilities and impacted communities to explore options for wet weather management based on their local context and desired goals.
