The Credit for Going Green project team developed a toolkit to help partners share project results within their organizations and throughout their professional networks. These resources can be used to develop presentations, web content, newsletter articles, or social media posts about the project.
This technical memo presents guidelines for calculating the pollutant removal rate of restored or constructed buffers established on shorelines with different soils, slopes and buffer widths. This tool can help New England communities use buffers to meet water quality standards and fulfill stormwater permitting requirements.
This document contains three lesson plans developed as part of a 2016 Collaborative Research project. The lesson plans help students explore the causes and impacts of stormwater discharges.
This is a Senior Honors Thesis written by Kinsey Fischer, an advisee of Rachel Noble. This study was conducted as part of a 2016 - 2020 collaborative research project about stormwater impacts in Beaufort, North Carolina.
This website was developed by a 2017 Science Transfer project team to provide stakeholders along the Mississippi-Alabama coast with up-to-date data on how human wastewater affects water quality and tangible recommendations for improving it.
This "edutainment" packet, developed by a 2016 Science Transfer team, is an outreach tool that describes threats to water quality along the Mississippi-Alabama coastline and helps end users understand how they can they can take actionable steps to improve local water quality.
In this video, three different methods for growing oysters are compared to help towns select the most cost-effective and environmentally-responsible strategy for restoring water quality along their coastline.
The Communities, Lands & Waterways Data Source is an encyclopedic compilation of all available data describing the socioeconomic and environmental conditions in the Coos Bay area.
This document is a summarization of data that describe the environmental and socioeconomic conditions in Coos Bay's South Slough and Coastal Frontal watersheds in Oregon.
This story map describes a 2010 Collaborative Research project spearheaded by North Inlet-Winyah Bay Reserve that investigated how swashes collect, transform, and export the nutrients and organic matter that fuel hypoxia along coastal South Carolina.
These resources are from workshops, focus groups, and surveys that a team from North Inlet-Winyah Bay and ACE Basin reserves used to scope their 2012 Collaborative Research project, "Advancing Low Impact Development in Coastal South Carolina."
These resources contain information about stakeholder workshops hosted by the 2012 Collaborative Research project team, "Advancing Low Impact Development in Coastal South Carolina." These resources include meeting agendas, presentations, meeting notes, and other materials.
This spreadsheet was developed by a 2012 Collaborative Research team to help property owners in coastal South Carolina calculate rules for stormwater treatment and runoff reductions from their sites based on statewide rules and regulations.
This spreadsheet was designed by a 2012 Collaborative Research team to help property owners and designers properly size rainwater harvesting systems.
This spreadsheet is a useful tool for maintaining various types of green infrastructure, including permeable pavement, green roofs, and rainwater harvesting systems.
These case studies highlight towns in coastal New Hampshire that used low impact development and green infrastructure strategies to reduce stormwater runoff and adapt to climate change.
This document outlines the strategy developed by a 2012 Collaborative Research project team to achieve a complete community approach for mitigating the negative effects associated with increasing impervious cover and stormwater runoff in coastal New Hampshire.
This fact sheet describes the advantages of incorporating climate change projections into the design of stormwater management systems and discusses the benefits of using green infrastructure and low impact development to adapt to climate change.
This guide, developed as part of a 2013 Collaborative Research project, includes simple projects that homeowners can undertake to reduce pollution from their yards.
This guide removes barriers to low impact development implementation in South Carolina by providing engineering tools, planning guidance, and case study examples that are relevant to the South Carolina coastal zone.
