Title: A Model for Effective Stakeholder Education and Involvement in Support of Water Resources Management Goals
Author: Macrina, JoAnn J.
Abstract: Involving the public in critical water resources decisions affecting environmental health of a community is becoming a key component of a water resource manager's role. New regulations such as National Pollution Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) Phase II MS4 permit program require public participation and outreach. But, just as important is the stakeholder's effectiveness in assisting the manager in achieving the bottom-line — clean water. Numerous water resources management plans have been written and stored on shelves, remaining unimplemented for various reasons. Often the reasons are insufficient funds or insufficient political and community support. A comprehensive public outreach program can help overcome these barriers.
