TR-487 Carters Creek Total Maximum Daily Load Implementation Project Education and Outreach Report: Task 6

Authors: L. Gregory, C. Schulz

Communication is the cornerstone of all effective efforts, and water quality projects are no exception. Open and effective lines of communication were established through this project with the purpose of conveying project findings, plans for upcoming work and to support discussion with stakeholders about evolving needs in the watershed. To accomplish this, three primary mechanisms were utilized to engage watershed stakeholders and included focused project meetings, a project website, and general project awareness through non-traditional outlets such as education events on riparian ecosystem health and function, water quality monitoring training, education courses and others.
