why is it a problem
Why is it a problem?
  • Many residents do not know why stormwater runoff is a problem
  • Define stormwater and its impacts on the environment and community on the front page of the stormwater page
    • Wastewater treatment
    • Overland surface flow that goes directly to the Wabash
      • Pollution and flooding
current policy
Current Policy
  • Clean Water Act (Public Law 95-217)
  • National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NDPES) Stormwater Program (1990)
    • Phase I (1991)
      • Targeted the urban sources generating the most runoff
    • Phase II (1997)
      • Targeted the remaining major sources of urban runoff
calculator

Three levels of complexity

    • Simplest- basic information on average house in the area
    • More complex- enter simple information such as yard size= average to get a more specific runoff amount
    • Most complex- link to GIS to get site specific info
  • Output in terms of gallons of runoff and swimming pools

Calculator

solutions

Give ideas for reducing storm water runoff

    • Rain barrels, rain gardens, plantings etc
    • Links to local merchants and directions for building/implementing
    • Quantify how much the action will reduce their current runoff

Solutions

drinking water local info

Give general information on where the local water comes from

  • Describe the effects of local runoff
  • Current situation of sewage system and the Wabash River
  • Why is it important in this community to reduce runoff
    • Pictures of local drainages?
  • Local drainage maps- people can find where their water goes

Drinking Water/ local info

community

Provide people the opportunity to interact

    • Maybe have a local “expert” available to answer questions
    • Show map of area with where others have pledged to make changes?
    • People can discuss things and talk about the most effective techniques
  • Info on local activities/workshops
  • Connected to backyard habitat and carbon footprint as well

Community

potential partners
Potential Partners
  • Many different potential partners in the Tippecanoe area
    • Getting local groups on board would help with funding, generating interest, and design ideas
    • Advertising on their sites and vice versa
    • Links to activities other groups are putting on (river cleanups etc.)
  • In general it seems that the more people we get on board the more successful our site will be
potential partners1

PotentialPartners

Tippecanoe County Soil and Water Conservation District

Tippecanoe County Partnership for Water Quality

Seems to get lots of groups together into one website with local information and links to other sites

Wabash River Enhancement Corporation

Talked to our class at the beginning of the semester

Purdue water groups

And many more
