Possible partnerships to encourage municipal stormwater management coordination may use the cross-municipal expertise of Councils of Governments (regional planning groups) as well as Erie County government resources such as the Erie County Department of Planning and Erie County Conservation District.

Likely areas of coordination include cooperation on Minimum Control Measures of municipal separate storm sewer system (MS4) permit obligations, such as Public Education and Outreach, Public Involvement and Participation, and Illicit Discharge Detection and Elimination.
