Project Overview

The objective of the project is to develop a targeted stormwater implementation and outreach program focused on non-profit partners. The Nine Mile Creek Watershed District is a 50 square mile fully-developed watershed with 15 major lakes and over twenty miles of creek system. Given that much development in this area occurred prior to the era of stormwater management regulations, runoff from many sites is untreated prior to discharge to downstream water bodies. Many non-profit properties within the watershed, including churches and other faith-based organizations, have large impervious surfaces (rooftops and parking lots) with little or no stormwater treatment on site. Through the proposed project, these sites will be identified and prioritized based on potential impact to downstream water resources and evaluated for feasibility.
