This article, published in Stormwater Magazine in September 2020, describes how an expert panel process helped develop performance curves to assign regulatory credit for restored or constructed buffers as water quality best management practices.
This resource contains the presenter slides, Q&A responses, recording, and presenter bios from the June 2020 webinar Credit for Going Green: Using an Expert Panel Process to Quantify the Benefits of Buffers.
This paper, published in Agricultural and Resource Economics Review, stemmed from work completed as part of the Buffer Options for the Bay project in Great Bay, NH.
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 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.
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 project overview describes a 2012 Collaborative Research project in which Great Bay Reserve and other partners helped New Hampshire communities adopt green infrastructure techniques to more effectively manage stormwater.
This project overview describes a 2012 Collaborative Research project that created an innovative, watershed-wide plan for stormwater and wastewater management in coastal New Hampshire.
This project overview describes a 2010 Collaborative Research project that studied the legacy effects of land use change on water quality in Grand Bay, Mississippi.
This project overview describes a 2017 Science Transfer project that developed products and tools that help end users on the Mississippi-Alabama coast learn how to minimize their impact on water quality.
This factsheet describes a 2017 Science Transfer project that is developing tools and materials to educate the public and decision-makers about the ways that man-made land use changes affect water quality, fisheries, and human health in the region around Grand Bay, Mississippi.
This project overview describes a 2018 Science Transfer project where three Northeast reserves are collaborating to develop consensus-based recommendations for pollutant load reduction performance curves to help New Hampshire communities use buffers to meet in-stream pollution reduction targets.
This project overview describes a 2010 Collaborative Research project that investigated nitrogen hotspots in New Hampshire's Great Bay.
This Plan is intended to serve as a guide for the towns of Exeter, Stratham and Newfields to support nitrogen load reduction, permit compliance, and ultimately ecosystem recovery in the Great Bay estuary which could fulfill permit requirements for a Nitrogen Control Plan.
This collection of resources from the Water Integration for Squamscott-Exeter (WISE) project in New Hampshire contains a final technical report, presentations, and additional resources related to the project.
This Google map shows sites in New Hampshire's Great Bay watershed that were sampled for nitrogen concentrations in May 2011 as part of a 2010 Collaborative Research project.
