Other project responsibilities include the development of model pollutant load and Effective Impervious Cover (EIC) reduction estimates within the watershed, identification of changes for city requirements necessary to facilitate the inclusion of LID stormwater management strategies, and outreach and education services to help build support for additional LID projects throughout the watershed.
