Soak it Up! Toolkit

August 23, 2017 at 10:49 am Leave a comment

The Soak It Up! Toolkit outlines 16 actions your municipality can take to reduce runoff and runoff pollution, providing examples of what other communities are doing and insights from practitioners about what works, and what doesn’t. The actions range from community engagement and capacity building, to implementing green infrastructure on public property (green streets, alleys, and parks), requiring and incentivizing action in new development, supporting the urban forest and healthy soils, and strategies for retrofitting existing developed lands.

The Stormwater Scorecard accompanies the toolkit, and allows you to conduct an in-depth analysis of your community’s existing policies, plans, and programs around green infrastructure and stormwater management. Anyone with an interest (decision-makers, stormwater managers, community groups, members of the public) can fill it out to evaluate what their community is doing, and what they could be doing, to reduce runoff and runoff pollution.
