This 16-page handout provides a nice summary of land use and water quality. It covers the basics of what a watershed is, issues related to impervious cover, types of pollutants and their sources, and basic actions a community can take to protect and restore its watershed.
This is a set of introductory letters that
allow a trainer to introduce him or herself and the Growth
Readiness training materials. There are template letters
for various audiences.
Readiness and Phase II Stormwater Permittee Guidance
This project is funded by a Section
319(h) Nonpoint Source grant; therefore, Growth Readiness
has limitations in how the money can be used to support
permitted activities. This document provides guidance to
Growth Readiness trainers about what can and cannot be financially
Watershed Planning Options
After a city has been exposed to the basic Growth Readiness training content, city officials might choose to take action in the community, but might not know the next steps to take. This document provides a list of support options.
Coordinator Contact Information
If you, as a trainer or city official,
need additional technical support, you will find that a
state wide network of Basin Coordinators is a good resource.
Most of the coordinators are state employees, whose job
it is to help communities and watershed groups find resources
and support to protect and restore their watersheds.
