> USEPA MANUALS:
> Under a cooperative agreement from EPA's Office of Wastewater Management
> and Office of Wetlands, Oceans, and Watersheds, the Center for Watershed
> Protection has just published three manuals of what will be a series of 11
> manuals, which CWP has dubbed "Urban Subwatershed Restoration Manual
> Series". CWP states that the series is designed to provide a stronger
> foundation to assist local and state managers in crafting urban watershed
> restoration plans. The manuals were written to "organize the enormous
> amount of information needed to restore small urban watersheds into a
> format that can be easily accessed by watershed groups, municipal staff,
> environmental consultants and other users."
> Each of these is approximately 100 pages long, and some also include a CD
> with software to enable data collection and storage.
> The eleven manuals are:
> 1. An Integrated Framework to Restore Small Urban Watersheds
> 2. Methods to Develop Restoration Plans for Small Urban Watersheds
> 3. Storm Water Retrofit Practices
> 4. Stream Repair and Restoration Practices
> 5. Riparian Management Practices
> 6. Discharge Prevention Practices
> 7. Previous Area Management Practices
> 8. Pollution Source Control Practices
> 9. Municipal Practices and Programs
> 10.The Unified Stream Assessment: A User's Manual
> 11. The Unified Subwatershed and Site Reconnaisance: A User's Manual
> The first three have been published in March 2004 and can be downloaded for
> free from www.cwp.org for the next six months. Five additional
> manuals are scheduled for releast later this summer and early fall, and the
> remaining three some time after that.
> Please feel free to share this email with your colleagues in state and
> local stormwater, wetlands, nonpoint source, coastal, monitoring, and
> other programs that have a stake in restoring small urban watersheds.
