    Abstract

    Während bei neu zu nutzenden Siedlungsflächen zunehmend eine örtliche und stärker dezentralisierte Regenwasserbewirtschaftung verfolgt wird, stellt sich die Frage, in welche Richtung die grundstücksbezogene Niederschlagsbewirtschaftung im Siedlungsbestand gesteuert wird, dessen Neuausrichtung in Bezug auf die Entwässerung höhere Anforderungen stellt. Der Beitrag betrachtet hierzu in Theorie und Praxis die strategische Ausgestaltung wichtiger kommunaler Steuerungsinstitutionen der Regenwasserbewirtschaftung (Anschluss- und Benutzungszwang sowie Entgeltmodelle). Vor dem Hintergrund eines mehrdimensionalen Zielsystems wird einerseits die Frage beantwortet, welche institutionelle Ausgestaltung sich theoretisch zu einer konsistenten Strategie einer eher zentralen oder dezentralen Regenwasserbewirtschaftung verdichten lässt und wie andererseits die kommunale Praxis derzeit tatsächlich verfährt. Dazu wird anhand einer empirischen Untersuchung gezeigt, dass die Gemeinden höchst unterschiedliche Strategieansätze verfolgen, aber Dezentralisierungsansätze auch im Siedlungsbestand durchaus verbreitet sind. Der Beitrag analysiert zugleich exemplarisch das Zusammenwirken institutioneller und technologischer Hand-lungsoptionen am Beispiel der aktuellen Herausforderungen einer nachhaltigen Regenwasserbewirtschaftung. -- While a policy of local and more decentralized rainwater management is increasingly pursued in newly developed settlement areas, the question arises as to which direction property-related rainwater management is being steered in existing settlements, whose restructuring places higher demands on drainage. This paper examines in theory and practice the strategic design of important municipal institutions for regulating rainwater management (compul-sory connection and use as well as fee models). Against the background of a multidimensional target system the following questions are answered: Which institutional structure could theoretically be consolidated into a consistent strategy for a more centralized or decentralized approach to rainwater management? and What is current local government practice? On the basis of an empirical study it is shown that local governments pursue very different approaches, yet decentralization approaches are also quite common in existing settlements. Thus, the paper analyzes the interaction between institutional and technological options for action based on the example of the current challenges facing sustainable rainwater management.
