Presentation by Cam McNutt, Environmental Program Consultant - Water Quality Assessment and Implementation, Division of Water Resources, NCDEQ
   

SCITS, WRAPS, and FOATS - New Tools to Satisfy Regulatory Needs and Track Water Restoration and Protection Efforts


This presentation will be focused on workflows and tools being developed within the Department of Environmental Quality Division of Water Resources to address 303(d) listed (Impaired) waters in North Carolina.  The tools are being developed to streamline the watershed restoration and protection planning process and develop a robust tracking and communications framework.   Tools include mobile applications for identifying pollution sources and conveyances and identifying solutions, a calculator for evaluating costs and benefits and return on investment for small and large scale restoration projects.  Workflows include online plan status and implementation tracking, connecting projects with funding and interested participants, and importantly tracking the success of projects in the Clean Water Act framework to ease reporting and tell the story of water quality/quantity improvement efforts in North Carolina.

Continuing Education Credits:  This forum will provide 1 PDH (professional development hour) credit for professional engineers and surveyors, contingent upon board approval.
