      Stormwater runoff is one of the fastest growing sources of pollution. When rain hits rooftops, parking lots and roads instead of wetlands, forests and grasslands, it tends to run into storm drains that are directly connected to our waterways.

    The goal of a proposed interdisciplinary approach involves providing incentives for the construction of small-scale best management practices throughout a small urban watershed, leading to a cost. In the context of a watershed-level study to determine the effectiveness of decentralized storm water management, we performed an order 1 soil survey of the Shepherd Creek watershed (Cincinnati.

    economic development program. Detroit is using the funding to demolish blighted properties, landscape and install trees on vacant lots to improve stormwater management and neighborhood aesthetics, and install infrastructure that will direct stormwater into new bio-retention basins. Excess stormwater runoff in a watershed can concentrate these non-point pollutants leading to offiste impacts, such as habitat alteration, increased toxic loadings, and other types of stream.

The overall project has two primary objectives: (1) to test the use of an auction to cost-effectively allocate stormwater management practices among landowners, and (2) to determine the effectiveness of the resulting implementation in terms of hydrological, water quality, and ecological measures.

effectively allocate stormwater management practices among landowners, and (2) to determine the effectiveness of the resulting implementation in terms of hydrological, water quality, and ecological measures. The stormwater management practices used in this project were limited to.

Using the parcels from the actual Shepherd Creek area the type of stormwater management practice, concomitant detention cost (DC) functions and inverse cost functions, were assigned to parcels in the watershed based on land use and soil type to calculate what the cost would be, in the absence of any market incentives, to control the excess stormwater runoff from watershed areas with dispersed, small-scale stormwater management practices.

CASE STUDY: Shepherd Creek Project, Cincinnati, OH. Using Economic Incentives to Manage Stormwater Runoff in the Shepherd Creek Watershed, Part I (US EPA, 65 pp, ) Describes a "reverse auction" to give homeowners incentives to install rain gardens and rain barrels; also describes monitoring water quality improvements to measure the effectiveness of the program.

This paper proposes an economic model of stormwater runoff damage estimation. Using a hedonic property model that allows us to account for the heterogeneity in each parcel's generation of stormwater runoff, we estimate the marginal implicit cost of an additio ft 3 of annual runoff (which represents about a 2% increase in the average Author: Kelly Hellman, Jeffrey Wagner, Daniel Lass, Karl Korfmacher, Bríd Gleeson Hanna.

[Hale W Thurston; United States. Environmental Protection Agency. Office of Research and Development.; National Risk Management Research Laboratory (U.S.); National Risk Management Research Laboratory (U.S.). Thus, we are using a multidisciplinary approach to test the effectiveness of decentralized best management practices (BMPs) at mitigating stormwater runoff in the Shepherd Creek watershed, a km 2 residential and forested watershed in Cincinnati, OH (USA).

Two types of BMPs will be evaluated, rain barrels and rain gardens, because of their potential for mitigating stormwater runoff from roofs. The objectives of this study are to determine whether a decentralized stormwater management strategy will lead to significant improvement in environmental quality at the watershed scale; and if this economically-based market mechanism will provide incentives at an appropriate extent to install sufficient best management practices (BMPs) throughout a watershed to effect improvements in.

Shepherd Creek catchment is the focus of a multidis-ciplinary project investigating the use of economic incentives to install retrofit stormwater best manage-ment practices (BMPs) so as to mitigate the effects of excess stormwater runoff on stream hydrology, water quality, and biotic integrity (Roy et al., ).

The rapid growth of stormwater utilities around the nation is an important step toward providing an effective institutional structure for stormwater management, but even within this relatively new structure, stormwater management will not be completely cost-effective until this traditionally viewed non-point source problem is converted into a point source problem.

The lack of integration in the study and management of water resource problems suggests the need for a multidisciplinary approach. As practiced in the Shepherd Creek stormwater management study (Cincinnati OH), we envision a multidisciplinary approach involving economic incentives in the management of land use and water resources in the Great Miami River basin.

Stormwater management is the use of specific practices, constructed or natural, to reduce, temporarily detain, slow down and/or remove pollutants from stormwater runoff. Stormwater management practices are essentially designed to restore or mimic some of the natural processes provided by the vegetative cover that existed prior to land disturbance.

The core of the project is its assessment of economic incentives to promote retrofitting of stormwater management practices (SWMPs) in a suburban watershed and to decrease excess storm water runoff. Stormwater management practices. Because a majority of the total impervious area (TIA) in Shepherd Creek was on private property in the form of buildings and driveways (Roy and Shuster, ), we selected dispersed residential stormwater control in the form of rain gardens and rain barrels.A rain garden is a horticultural landscaped area that infiltrates and evapotranspires what would Cited by: Stormwater and Economic Development March Original printed on recycled paper Balancing Economic Development, Impaired Water Bodies, and Stormwater Jobs, water pollution, and stormwater: These three subjects are among the most controversial issues in.

Shepherd Creek Pilot Project Problem: • Dominant land use is suburban residential • Source is primarily storm water runoff from impervious areas • Multiple stressors: storm water quantity, nutrients, bacteria, and sediment Will incentives induce the placement of an adequate number of BMPs, and will implementation result in quantifiable.Researchers hope to show that a properly designed tradable runoff credit system would create economic incentives for landowners to employ best management practices to protect waterways.
