Step 4 - Field Work


Field work for this step can be done as a second field exercise, or combined with your IC and drainage evaluations. Your field assessments should collect the information you need to evaluate your retrofit options. This information includes drainage pattern, impervious cover, available space for retrofits, and other site constraints involving utilities, land ownership, etc. The Center for Watershed Protection (CWP), a national nonprofit that was a partner in the Eagleville Brook project, has devised a Retrofit Reconnaissance Investigation form that can be used to ensure that all the relevant information is collected. This can be downloaded for free (once you’ve registered) from the CWP website.
