Excerpt: Issue The pressure on water resources due to urbanization is rapidly increasing as the U.S. population grows. The pace of urban growth in the Southeastern United States is unprecedented and it is predicted to be one of the fastest growing regions of the country in the next three decades. Along with increased development comes increased impervious surfaces ? areas such as roads, parking lots, driveways and buildings ? which prevent water to filter into the underlying soil. Urbanization causes excessive and polluted runoff from impervious surfaces as well as extensive shifts in water resources. Effective storm water management practices can partially ease the impacts of urbanization. Development practices that reduce impervious area and include other strategies to protect water quality are more effective and less costly than corrective restoration efforts (Nichols et al., 1999).
