These tools might assist in proposing policies and management programs focusing on conservation and preservation; effect of land use on environmental resources.

  • Municipal stormwater risk management framework
  • Sourcewater protection water quality risk assessment for climate change - handbook/worksheet
  • Westhoff water balanceThe accounting of inflow and outflow of water in a system according to the components of the hydrologic cycle. model
  • WetlandA vegetated area such as a bog, fen, marsh, or swamp, where the soil or root zone is saturated for part of the year. hydrologic analysis tool

Subwatershed scale

  • Macroeconomic study
  • Risk and return and investment tool
  • Thermal stream index
  • Hotspot identification tool-sedimentSoil, sand and minerals washed from land into water, usually after rain. They pile up in reservoirs, rivers and harbors, destroying fish-nesting areas and holes of water animals and cloud the water so that needed sunlight might not reach aquatic plans. Careless farming, mining and building activities will expose sediment materials, allowing them to be washed off the land after rainfalls.
  • Natural assets project

Environmental impact report/ subdivision plan scale

  • Integrated water management tool
  • Soil risk assessment tool
  • WetlandA vegetated area such as a bog, fen, marsh, or swamp, where the soil or root zone is saturated for part of the year. water balanceThe accounting of inflow and outflow of water in a system according to the components of the hydrologic cycle. module: Visual Otthymo 5

Stormwater management plan

Post construction maintenance or monitoring

  • Green infrastructureNatural vegetation and vegetative technologies in urban settings such as: urban forests; green roofs; green walls; green spaces; rain gardens; bioswales; community gardens; natural and engineered wetlands and stormwater management ponds; and porous pavement systems. These systems are designed to provide multiple benefits, such as moderate temperatures, clean air and water, and improve aesthetics. asset management tool
