The goal of the Capisic Brook Watershed Landowner Survey was twofold. The data gathered through the survey is aiding in the development of the Capisic Brook Watershed Management Plan, a project being undertaken by the City of Portland and Woodard and Curran, and funded by the Maine DEP through 604(b) federal stimulus money. The information helped to identify barriers to implementing residential best management practices to address stormwater and to develop targeted marketing strategies to promote stormwater-friendly behaviors. In addition, the materials developed and process carried out will serve as a model for other municipalities, since the survey was designed to be easily tailored for use in other watersheds.
