Project Overview

The goals of the Sand Hill River WRAP will be accomplished in two project phases. The first phase, covered under a previous contract, defined the existing watershed conditions; identified gaps in existing data; designed and implemented a plan to address data gaps; incorporated gap data into watershed description; developed the Hydrological Simulation Program – Fortran (HSPF) model; established citizen advisory, technical advisory and locally-based focus groups; researched and designed an education and outreach strategy; and designed and deployed the tools and methods to employ the strategy. The goals of the second phase are to develop load duration curves; develop the Total Maximum Daily Load (TMDL) studies; develop a restoration and protection plan; develop an implementation plan; and develop and implement on-going civic engagement evaluation and feed-back strategies.
