COLUMBIA COUNTY LWCD: Spring Creek WQ Analysis & Modeling

Purpose

Description of products or deliverables are as follows: Model Identification * Overview of possible river models, contrasting model strengths and weaknesses. * Selection of an appropriate river model for water quality analysis and adaptive management follow up modeling will be selected for use on Spring Creek. Build out Scenarios * Two sets of products will be established related to the baseline land use inventory. The first product is a set of maps depicting the existing conditions of the surface watersheds. The maps will include existing land uses, tax parcel boundaries, orthophotography, and environmental constraints. The second product will be a set of statistics that measure the percent and acreages of developed and undeveloped land uses as well as environmental constraints. * A review of the existing regulatory framework will be compiled in a brief report that summarizes regulatory findings for the ground and surface watersheds and by jurisdiction. If significant differences are found among jurisdictions, a matrix will be compiled to illustrate the differences. * A set of maps and set of statistics will be compiled for a build out assessment of the surface watershed. The maps will detail areas that are available and unavailable for future development. Statistics will identify how many acres are available for future development and how many additional development units are possible with existing regulations. The change in potential impervious surface will be calculated and displayed on a map. * Statistics will be derived that determine how much change in phosphorus loading is possible for the surface watershed based on the build-out scenarios. * Final report
