Stormwater Basin Retrofit Screening Tool
CRWP co-leads and participates in the Central Lake Erie Basin Collaborative, a network of organizations and initiatives working together for the health of Lake Erie watersheds. One of the Collaborative’s goals as a network is to attain and maintain the state’s water quality standards for northern Ohio streams, and this includes reducing the impacts of stormwater pollution on streams in developed watersheds. Stormwater basin retrofits can be a useful and cost-effective way to reduce the impacts of stormwater on Ohio’s streams. CRWP received funding on behalf of the Central Lake Erie Basin Collaborative through the Ohio EPA Section 319 Grant Program to develop a screening tool for stormwater basin retrofit opportunities that will help users identify potential retrofit opportunities and take next steps towards implementation of a retrofit appropriate for a particular site. The Collaborative worked with Sustainable Streams for the development of this tool, which can be used by the Collaborative and its partners.
The screening tool and guidance on how to use the tool can be found here.
Sustainable Streams presented a training on the use of the screening tool to the Central Lake Erie Basin Collaborative on August 17th, 2021. A video recording of this training can be found here.
Sustainable Streams also developed a la carte, pre-recorded modules to supplement information presented at the training. These modules can also be found on CRWP’s YouTube webpage:
