- Salmon have disappeared from 40% of historical range (Nehlsen et al 1991)
- Previous studies suggest that 10% Total Impervious Area is the level at which stream and wetland degradation begins.
- "The typical suburban development in the PNW has been estimated to have roughly 90% less storage capacity than under naturally forested conditions (Wigmosta et al. 1994)."
- "Analysis demonstrated that the relationships to be discussed were very similar if development is alternatively expressed as road-density (Figure 3). This is especially relevant in that the transportation component of imperviousness often exceeds the "rooftop" component in many land-use categories (Schueler 1994). A recent study in the Puget Sound region has shown that the transportation component typical accounts for over 60% of basin imperviousness in suburban areas (City of Olympia 1994).
