Please fill out this Tackling Stormwater in Oregon’s Small Cities Survey to help improve water quality issues throughout the Willamette Basin.
Your responses will help identify the barriers, if any, to incorporating natural systems (wetlands, bioswales, rain gardens, green roofs, permeable paving, etc.) into stormwater management programs in Oregon’s small cities in the Willamette Basin. Many cities are facing State and Federal mandates to reduce bacteria, mercury, and temperature levels in local rivers and streams and need assistance to address these issues. Survey results will help create a Stormwater Management Plan Template for use by small cities to address these and other water quality issues. This project is a combined effort of the University of Oregon, the OSU Extension Sea Grant, the Oregon Department of Environmental Quality, the City of Cottage Grove, and the City of Creswell.
If you have any questions, comments, or concerns, please contact Linsey Payne:
