Low Impact Development Rapid Assessment (LIDRA)

The Low Impact Development Rapid Assessment Tool is a model designed to compare the life-cycle values of implementing various green infrastructure techniques used in reducing runoff versus conventional stormwater management practices. The tool pulls from a database of performance and cost values derived from national data.

Automated Geospatial Watershed Assessment Tool (AGWA)

The Automated Geospatial Watershed Assessment (AGWA) tool is a GIS-based multipurpose hydrologic analysis system for use by watershed, water resource, land use, and biological resource managers and scientists in performing watershed- and basin-scale studies. It uses readily available spatial data sets to parameterize and run two widely used watershed runoff and erosion models: the Soil […]

Field Guide for Monitoring Urban Tree Growth

This field guide was developed collaboratively by researchers, practitioners, and student members of the Urban Tree Growth & Longevity Working Group. The Minimum Data Set is the core group of variables necessary for any long-term study of urban trees, including tree location, species, and diameter at breast height. These protocols were pilot tested in summer […]

Water Harvesting Calculator

This tool estimates the volume of water required for toilet flushing in a building and compares it to the amount of water that a rainwater harvesting system could capture from roofs and parking lots. Inputs include: information on building occupancy, average rainfall, and roof and parking lot catchment areas. Results are estimates of toilet flushing […]
