ROCK RIVER COALITION, INC: Rock River Basin-Water Star Community Program

Purpose

The primary goal of this Rock River Basin project is to improve/protect water quality by promoting urban stormwater management through a program to recognize communities that conduct a stormwater managment program that meets performance standards as well as enhance groundwater protection, habitat protection, and human health. Objectives include: 1) Organizing a statewide partnership of stakeholders concerned about urban stormwater/urban environment; 2) developing "star water program" elements, activities, point structure, incentives, etc., and 3) establishing at least three pilot Water Star Communities within the Rock River Basin. Please note: Final report deliverables help us ensure that the grant has been satisfactorily completed, and that state dollars are being spent wisely. Every deliverable, no matter how minor, must be completed in order to receive full reimbursement for the state share of costs. Ranking questions used to obtain this award, and specific deliverables mentioned in your grant description, constitute final report deliverables. If any deliverable is not adequately provided in the final report, only partial reimbursement, at the department's discretion, will be made. The only exception will be if there is a well-justified and department-approved scope amendment. If you have any question about what a specific ranking question or other deliverable means, please contact your river coordinator BEFORE you sign this agreement.
