National Stormwater Calculator
The Environmental Protection Agency has produced a National Stormwater Calculator (SWC) to estimate storm runoff which allows users to consider how runoff may vary based on historical weather and potential future climate. The SWC also allows the user to to select different types of green infrastructure practices to determine how much runoff is captured. Green infrastructure promotes the natural movement of water instead of allowing it to wash into streets and down storm drains.
The city of Blue Springs partners with the Mid-America Regional Council to provide educational materials regarding stormwater management.
