National Stormwater Calculator: Great Lakes Applications Webinar Archive

On February 19, 2020, this webinar was presented featuring applications of EPA's National Stormwater Calculator (SWC) in the Great Lakes region. The primary focus of the SWC is to inform users on how well they can meet a desired stormwater retention target with and without the use of green infrastructure. The SWC makes it easy to estimate runoff reduction when planning a new development or redevelopment site with low impact development stormwater controls. This presentation focuses on examples of how the SWC has been applied in the Great Lakes region to advance the science and implementation of green infrastructure to protect water quality and human health. The applications include: U.S. EPA’s Great Lakes Restoration Initiative, University of Michigan’s Great Lakes Integrated Sciences and Assessments program, and Northeast Ohio Regional Sewer District’s Green Infrastructure Grants Program.
