Thanks to our friends at USGS, we have collected some interesting links on this page. We plan to list and update this topic on nature based ways to view water and how it moves through the soil.

– Library on different BMPs from the Chesapeake Stormwater Network:
https://chesapeakestormwater.net/training-library/stormwater-bmps/

– Spreadsheet tool for estimating runoff and load reductions from Center for Watershed Protection:
https://www.cwp.org/spreadsheet-tools-for-estimating-watershed-pollutant-loads-and-load-reductions/

– EPA stormwater calculator:
https://www.epa.gov/sciencematters/epas-stormwater-calculator-gets-update

– BMP International database, which provides data on monitoring efforts throughout the world:
http://www.bmpdatabase.org/

– Penn State article that includes an estimate (likely using the iTree modeling software) that NYC trees reduce almost 900 Mgal per year:
