Project Overview
Regional public projects that are the focus of the proposed project include: Infiltration areas and a sedimentation pond enhancement in subwatersheds N3/N4; Parking lot storm drain rain gardens and a sedimentation pond enlargement in subwatersheds N5/N6; An infiltration area and a sedimentation pond enhancement in subwatersheds S9/S11; Ditch checks along Highway 13 in subwatershed 10. The project social outcome goal is that watershed residents will understand that immediate phosphorus reduction actions result in future benefits to water quality; in other words, that tangible benefits of watershed BMPs implemented now may only appear in long-term, future trends, and not until full BMP establishment (in particular, vegetation). This goal will be achieved through community outreach activities, educational displays of projects located in public parks, and the solicitation of feedback from stakeholder groups.
