Stormwater Assessment
The results of this assessment will be used to site BMPs in the interim and implementation phases and to site BMPs carried out under Adaptive Management.

Water Quality Protection Ordinance
The City of Woodcreek’s Water Quality Protection Ordinance already has protections in place, including impervious cover limits. The City is open to enhancing the ordinance to include metrics to quantify pollution mitigation. This will not be a new ordinances or regulation; rather it will be a planning tool for decision makers to use when managing urbanization in the watershed.

Code Enhancement – Impervious Cover Limits
Code can be enhanced to include metrics that quantify the water quality benefits of implementing rain water harvesting systems or decreased impervious cover. This will not be a new ordinance or regulation; rather it will be a planning tool for decision makers to use when managing urbanization in the watershed.

Code Enhancement – Karst Feature Protection
Known recharge features exist in Woodcreek. These features are protected under the existing ordinance, but the City sees the benefit to enhancing protections. This may be couple with above code enhancements. Land could be banked around specific karst recharge features.

Demonstrations BMPs – Water tower
Water Tower site next to City Hall is ideal for its high visibility and runoff mitigation potential. Area Master Naturalists are coordinating with the Stakeholder Committee and the City to develop and install BMPs and educational signage at this site. BMPs include rain gardens, rainwater harvesting, nativescaping, xeriscaping, swales, mulching, pervious pathways and sidewalks.  

Demonstrations BMPs – City Owned Land
City owned land at Augusta Drive and Augusta Lane is an ideal site for demonstration BMPs. Could also be used for above mentioned code enhancement.

Demonstrations BMPs – City Owned Land “Triangle Park”
City owned land at Triangle Park will have demonstration BMPs installed. Potential BMPs include alternative grass and land cover, rain gardens, rainwater harvesting, nativescaping, xeriscaping, swales, mulching, pervious pathways and sidewalks. Could also be used for above mentioned code enhancement.

Demonstrations BMPs – City Owned Land adjacent to Hog Creek
City owned land is will have demonstration BMPs installed. Potential BMPs include alternative grass and land cover, rain gardens, rainwater harvesting, nativescaping, xeriscaping, swales, mulching, pervious pathways and sidewalks. Could also be used for above mentioned code enhancement. More information needed.
