Step 2 - Field work to determine drainage patterns


In some areas, rural roadways for example, a “windshield survey” from the car will be enough to confirm the status of IC. In more urban areas... prepare for sticking your head down a lot of storm drains! (Home page photos show the Eagleville project team doing exactly that.) As you walk the watershed, note the drains and confirm, when possible, where they take the water—by looking. Where there are no drains, note which way the land slopes and where the stormwater goes—this can best be confirmed by going out on a rainy day.
