Measurable Goals and Assessment Tools

Setting, Achieving, and Evaluating Measurable Goals and

Assessment Tools

measurable goals
Measurable Goals
  • BMP design objectives or goals that quantify the progress of program implementation and the performance of your BMPs
  • Markers or milestones that you will use to track the progress and effectiveness of your BMPs in reducing pollutants to the MEP
measurable goals3
Measurable Goals
  • Yes/No
    • usually quantified tasks
    • action items
  • Variety
    • activity
    • output
    • outcome
    • impact
  • Allow for evaluation
activity
Activity
  • By the end of year one, we will cleanout 50% of the drop inlets. By the end of year two we will cleanout another 50%
  • By the end of year one, we will adopt an enforceable ordinance prohibiting non-storm water discharges
outputs
Outputs
  • By the end of year one we will produce two different brochures - one general and one targeting lawn and garden care
outcomes
Outcomes
  • There will be a 50% increase in the people surveyed who know the basics about MS4s between year one and year three
  • There will be a 25% decrease in the number of reported localized flooding incidents between years two and three (with some evaluation of rain data)
impacts
Impacts
  • 25% reduction in trash collected at creek cleanup between years 1 and 2 and between years 2 and 3
  • 2 degree decrease in water temperature between years 1 and 5 due to re-vegetation of riparian corridor
types of measurable goals
Types of Measurable Goals
  • Activity
  • Output
  • Outcomes
  • Impacts

Usually more directly related to water quality but less direct control

Measurable Goals
  • Reasonable
  • Relevant
  • Reaching

  • Program

Measurable Goals Evaluation
  • Have you achieved your measurable goals?
  • Collect the data you need to make determination
    • baseline data
    • inspection forms/databases
  • After implementation, are they still reasonable
program evaluation
Program Evaluation

In some cases measurable goals may be the assessment tool, in other cases you may also need separate assessment tool

Assessment Tools

Measurable Goals

Assessment Tools
  • Evaluate and guide your program
program evaluation14
Program Evaluation
  • Program is effective
    • Number of inspections is increasing while number of enforcement actions is decreasing
  • Program may need improvement
    • The amount of trash collected at a creek clean up remains static for three years
program guidance through evaluation
Program Guidance Through Evaluation
  • What does it mean that the hotline isn’t getting calls?
      • No problems?
      • Not enough advertisement?
      • People don’t want to be “tattle-tails”?
      • People don’t believe it will be followed-up on?
program guidance through evaluation cont
Program Guidance Through Evaluation (cont.)
  • Storm drain maintenance database indicates one area has particularly full drains
  • Garbage receptacles are always full
  • Vacant lot always has tires in it
evaluation17
Evaluation
  • Remember goals of program
  • Educate staff on the goals of the program
    • Help recognize problems and
    • Help find creative solutions
conclusion
Conclusion
  • Measurable goals objectify program implementation and are an important part of illustrating compliance with the permit.
  • Assessment tools can help evaluate and guide your program.

Both are crucial for an effective program
