Reducing Stormwater Runoff on Local Roads

Since 2012, CBCC has received grants from NFWF, NOAA, and EPA/DPNR for stormwater mitigation. The goal of these projects is to reduce sediment and pollutants reaching the bay to protect our marine habitats. We do this by installing stormwater BMPs (best management practices) on local roads and performing public education and outreach.

We begin by working with property owners to identify priority project areas. Each project starts with an engineering analysis to determine the type and locations of BMPs. The grants cover engineering, plans and permits from DPNR. Construction is mostly paid for by property owner contributions. These projects depend on cooperation with neighborhoods, VI Dept. of Public Works and DPNR. We also rely on in kind contributions–donations of time, money, goods and services–to make these projects possible.
