In 2015, CASQA released its Vision and Strategic Actions for Managing Stormwater in the 21st Century. The purpose of the Vision and Strategic Actions is to address the primary issue for stormwater management: The lack of consensus on how best to meet the goals of the Clean Water Act for stormwater. CASQA developed the Vision and Strategic Actions for CASQA, its members and the public to pursue a comprehensive plan for stormwater that will achieve the goals of the Clean Water Act and improve the efficiency and effectiveness of stormwater management.
In 2017, CASQA updated the Vision to version 1.1 based on developments in stormwater management in the three years since the original Vision was developed in 2014 and adopted in early 2015.
The 2018 Vision At-A-Glance identifies the Principles, Actions, Goals, and Objectives for 2018. This table, an appendix in CASQA’s 2017 Annual Report, provides a quick and summarized version of CASQA’s Vision document.
