Best Management Practice (BMP) planning using the BMP-DSS navigator modeling tool, Athens-Clarke County, Georgia, 2012
Tetra Tech was contracted by Athens-Clarke County (ACC) for assistance in developing a Watershed Management Program to proactively reduce non-point source pollution associated with urban runoff and improve the overall health of the community’s watersheds. An initial study program was developed in 2008 for three subwatersheds; Brooklyn, Hunnicutt, and Trail Creek. In 2011, there additional watersheds; Tanyard, Cedar, and Shoal Creek were included. Significant improvements to the watershed management planning process were achieved through the inclusion of a site-scale model capable of evaluating and optimizing proposed management measures.
