Nonpoint Source education in LSUP basin (NEMO)

Purpose

Adapt the Nonpoint Education for Municipal Officials (NEMO) power point educational tool to reflect local conditions using local examples for the Lake Superior basin.

Objective

The goal of this project is to provide community planners with information about the connection between land use, nonpoint sources of pollution, and impacts on water quality. This information will assist municipal officials with the development of a framework for the integration of natural resource based planning efforts within the Western Lake Superior basin.

Outcome

The major component of this project will be a regional adaptation of the University of Connecticut Extension’s Nonpoint Education for Municipal Officials (NEMO) Powerpoint presentation. This presentation includes a description of land uses and the types of nonpoint source pollution generated by each. It describes a watershed based framework for planning, the role of impervious surfaces in pollutant transport, and best management practices. Staff would identify and integrate Wisconsin Lake Superior basin nonpoint issues into the presentation materials and would work with regional educators and planners to make these materials available to coastal communities and other groups.
