Metro Sub-Watershed Analysis (SWA) 2019
for accelerated implementation, including local resource protection and enhancement grants and statewide program enhancements of supplements for technical assistance, citizen and community outreach, compliance, and training and certification.
This project will result in the preparation of up to 15 SWAs in urban and rural landscapes to identify BMP
installation opportunities, estimate BMP installation costs, and rank BMPs by cost effectiveness at achieving target water resource goals.
LOCAL LEVERAGED FUNDS
It is critical to train new staff, create modeling protocols for new BMPs, refine and calibrate models, and test ever-advancing modeling applications. The Metro Conservation District?s (MCD) Sub-Watershed Analysis (SWA) program provides these capacity-building services and unites efforts across 11 SWCDs. MCD proposes to analyze an additional 15 subwatersheds. The analyses will identify the location and estimated cost/benefit relationship for BMPs, evolve with new technology, and share discoveries metro-wide.
