  10. Project Selection—Beyond the Mathematics of the Atlas Rankings

  11. Project Selection—Beyond the Mathematics of the Atlas Rankings QUESTION: Given your unique local knowledge and expertise, is there other criteria that should be used to select water quality improving projects for implementation? NEXT STEPS: Add any missing criteria, select top 3, and note how each should be rated

  12. Initial Selection of Projects From Project Atlas • Using the final criteria and rating system select water quality improving projects for implementation from Project Atlas. • This is a “draft” selection • 10 “high” rated projects across the board (stream preservation/restoration/enhancement, buffer restoration, stream bank stabilization, wetland preservation/enhancement, stream reach, stormwater BMPs)

  13. Informational MaterialsLandowner brochure for BMPs QUESTION: Who is the target audience? QUESTION: What information do you want to convey? • Agricultural landowners & farmers? • High Impervious Sites (e.g.-Commercial properties)? • Smaller homeowner/landowner? • Structural BMPs? • Non-structural BMPs? • Resources for Additional Information? • Types of contacts? • Other ideas?
