This paper evaluates the structural and regulatory approaches to stormwater management in King County, Washington (U.S.). The primary aims of the study are: 1) to evaluate the empirical relationships between watershed and stream conditions, 2) to review King County’s history of stormwater management, 3) to compare regulating watershed land use to building strucutral BMPs as solutions to the stormwater impacts associated with urbanization, and 4) to make recommendations for a more integrated stormwater management approach in King County.
