5 How do you analyze a large watershed… ….and avoid getting flooded in data? ….and avoid getting flooded in data?

6 Find major sources of data GIS/Modeling Interviews of Stakeholders Electronic Data Collection GIS/Modeling Interviews of Stakeholders Electronic Data Collection

7 Use GIS Tools for Analysis of Spatial Data Nonpoint Source Modeling Subwatershed Scoring PRIORITIZATION Nonpoint Source Modeling Subwatershed Scoring PRIORITIZATION

8 Green Belt Brown Belt Identification of Regional Patterns

9 Major Watershed Scoring Combine 217 subwatersheds of tributaries to main stem to form 42 major units.

10 Average Preservation Scores Major Watershed Scoring

11 Average Mitigation Scores

12 Major Watershed Scoring Average Percent Total Impervious Area

13 What’s Next for the Project? Confirming final goals for the WMP Analyzing existing land use policies Identifying model ordinances Drafting the WMP Organizing data for access by various means Confirming final goals for the WMP Analyzing existing land use policies Identifying model ordinances Drafting the WMP Organizing data for access by various means

14 Benefits of the Basin-wide WMP  Defining critical issues and workable solutions  Coordination/cooperation to move larger planning efforts forward  Share successes and resources  Clearinghouse for watershed information  Platform for new initiatives (avoid “reinventing the wheel”)  Gateway for leveraging implementation funding  Cost-sharing (avoid duplication of efforts)  A healthy river requires overlapping (political and subwatershed) approaches  Defining critical issues and workable solutions  Coordination/cooperation to move larger planning efforts forward  Share successes and resources  Clearinghouse for watershed information  Platform for new initiatives (avoid “reinventing the wheel”)  Gateway for leveraging implementation funding  Cost-sharing (avoid duplication of efforts)  A healthy river requires overlapping (political and subwatershed) approaches
