Abstract:

The Clermont County Office of Environmental Quality is sponsoring the development of a Site Assessment Tool (SAT) to help evaluate the hydrologic and pollutant loading impacts of new development projects. Users input land use, flow routing, and best management practice (BMP) design information for a project and the tool predicts runoff volume, peak discharge, and pollutant loading. This information can be compared to pre-development conditions or conditions that would have been expected when the site was in its natural state (e.g., entirely forested). Users must make site design changes until post-development conditions meet prespecified targets established by the County. Site design changes can include re-designing the BMPs, adding more BMPs, or altered site layout (e.g., less imperviousness).
