Additionally, many municipalities have little data on actual rainfall values, inlet capacities, tidal influences, or actual expected future maintenance-related condition of structures. Without this information, designers may unknowingly produce inferior designs. © 2003 by CRC Press LLC 4. Upstream development floods downstream development, because it is not accounted for in the design of the downstream structures, or it is not accounted for far enough downstream in the drainage system. Few municipalities require designers to account for their own flow-related impacts or for the flow increases from expected development located upstream.

Computing power is rarely a limitation. Graphical capabilities have brought the ability to make a compelling visual argument in a public meeting within the reach of even modestly resourced groups. Models have slick input and output modules, allowing users to develop attractive tables and charts and real-time automated demonstrations. The Internet has become the communication medium of choice for many municipalities, groups, and individuals, serving as an immediate forum for ideas and thoughts to move rapidly across interest groups.

Master planning refers to a wide range of types of comprehensive plans that mitigate known flooding, erosion, and pollution problems; plan to avoid future problems and seek to take advantage of opportunities to enhance the environment; improve flood control capabilities; and seek multiobjective use goals. The stormwater master planning process moves from identification of problems, needs, and opportunities through preliminary solutions and constraints, to final recommendations and actions. Much master planning has been driven almost solely by existing acute flooding problems.
