Land cover changes may cause a disturbance in the water cycle, the consequence of which is an increase in the volume of stormwater runoff. In such a situation, the use of traditional stormwater systems leads to a number of problems, including the hydraulic overload of these systems and the deterioration of rivers. Therefore, stormwater management clearly affects the quality of life in a particular area. In order to facilitate effective stormwater management, the paper identifies and assesses factors that impact the sustainability of stormwater systems. Using the premises of PESTLE analysis, these factors were categorized as Political, Economic, Social, Technological, Legal, or Environmental. Assessments from an expert team were also used to identify elements that are crucial for the development of innovative solutions for stormwater management.
