Abstract:

The purpose of the accounting system and protocol is to facilitate transactions aimed at attaining watershed improvement and sustainability goals and to record improvements and track progress toward goal attainment. Specifically, the accounting system is designed to quantify the ecosystem improvements from managing stormwater to restore environmental flows. The elements of the accounting system are generic and can be applied to achieve the economic, environmental, and social performance goals of watershed stakeholders based upon their unique circumstances. However, we apply the accounting system to two Great Lakes watersheds, the Rouge River watershed in Michigan and the Menomonee River near Milwaukee, Wisconsin.
