We have some important and exciting information to share:
Don't Drip and Drive
Vehicle testing is underway and lots of great information is being captured but we need your help! Volunteers have been short due to the time of year, and we could really use some help with the events in your area. Remember, this can be used to help you meet permit compliance (but only if you directly participate locally). The following dates are currently scheduled with many more on the way:
- Sunday, July 27- Everett Aquasox Game 12-9 p.m.
- Saturday, August 2- Twin Rivers Park in Arlington 10 a.m.-2 p.m.
- Saturday, August 16- Bellingham Resources Store
Best Management Practice (BMP) Prioritization Process
As part of STORM's BMP Prioritization Process, we are seeking professional expert opinions to rank residential stormwater BMP's from a technical/environmental science perspective. We will then further filter these BMP's using social science/outreach research and perspective. Attached you will find a letter of explanation and the survey for you to distribute to environmental science and technical experts dealing with stormwater/water quality. Please follow these steps to assist in this effort:
1) Complete the survey and/or have other qualified staff take the survey (should take 10-15 minutes). Other qualified staff may be; IDDE Coordinators, Surface Water (SW) Monitoring Specialists, SW Engineers, Modelers/Researchers, Maintenance and Operations Specialists, SW Policy Planners, NPDES Coordinators, etc.
2) Please return all completed surveys to Peter Holte (firstname.lastname@example.org) by August 18, 2014
