Designing and Evaluating Effective Behavior-Change Programs for Stormwater Programs
In this SAM Effectiveness Study, WSU and Evergreen StormH20 used surveys and literature to evaluate which types of stormwater problems are amenable to and best addressed by behavior-change efforts. This page includes helpful decision-support tools, templates, and guidance documents developed during the study.
EWA Construction Documents
We would like to introduce three new E&O documents created to address construction site issues. Eastern WA permittees working as part of the EWA Stormwater Education & Outreach Working Group identified a need for documents with information on construction BMPs for developers, engineers, planners, review staff, contractors, and construction crews.
EWA Effectiveness Studies
The purpose of the Monitoring and Assessment permit requirement in the Eastern WA Permit is to conduct studies to determine the effectiveness of the Stormwater Management Program and communicate the findings to the region. The effectiveness studies focus on Best Management Practices (BMPs) used by Permittees and include studies focused on operational, or structural BMPS, or education and outreach practices.
