Journal Article | November 2020

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.

Webinar Summary | June 2020

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.

Journal Article | October 2019

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. 

Multimedia | July 2019

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.

Tool | July 2019

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.

Case Study | December 2018

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.

Report | December 2018

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.

Report | December 2018

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.

Project Overview | December 2018

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.

Project Overview | December 2018

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.

Project Overview | October 2018

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.

Project Overview | August 2018

This project overview describes a 2010 Collaborative Research project that investigated nitrogen hotspots in New Hampshire's Great Bay. 

Report | December 2015

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.

Multimedia | December 2015

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.

Multimedia | August 2015

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.
