As a result, regulators and managers have been forced to reexamine Florida’s current approach to stormwater management.  We first discuss how current regulations fail to achieve adequate treatment, and describe the currently proposed solution in the form of a new statewide stormwater rule, which relies in part on an approach referred to as “low impact development” or “LID.”  LID presents unique implementation challenges in terms of the legal and regulatory framework, operation and maintenance of LID systems and acceptance by the public.  We present the results of a quantitative and qualitative investigation of barriers to LID due to perceptions of stakeholders in the regulated and regulatory community in Florida.  We find a lack of acceptance by the regulatory community mainly due to concerns about long-term operation and maintenance of LID systems, particularly when proposed for use
