Economic Ecology maximizes both economic and environmental returns to solve water issues, such as pollutant removal and flood reduction, at a regional scale. It is defined by ecological principles that are validated by engineering measurements and performance standards. It is proactive rather than reactive, addressing the causes of problems and not merely the symptoms. By employing the principles of Economic Ecology, planners and decision-makers can reduce wasteful spending and more effectively meet regulatory requirements for stormwater, flooding, and other elements. Economic Ecology also involves the formation of partnerships with government, public, nonprofit, and private organizations to share costs and increase benefits throughout an entire region or watershed.
