Innovative Stormwater Management in Northern Ohio
Monitoring site descriptions
The “Implementing Credits and Incentives for Innovative Stormwater Management” project promoted the implementation of low impact development (LID) stormwater control measures (SCMs) that reduce the impacts of stormwater runoff on Ohio’s coastal communities and Lake Erie and worked to improve state and local stormwater policies. A project team led by the Chagrin River Watershed Partners (CRWP) and Old Woman Creek National Estuarine Research Reserve (OWC NERR) assessed the performance of bioretention and permeable pavement on poorly draining soils by collecting and analyzing hydrologic data from 3 bioretention cells, 4 permeable pavement applications, and a permeable pavement-cistern treatment train to determine runoff reduction by these SCMs. This case study document includes brief descriptions of each site and monitoring results. The National Estuarine Research Reserve System (NERRS) Science Collaborative funded this project.
