Rock Creek Watershed Stormwater Runoff Analysis: Executive Summary

The purpose of this modeling project is to estimate the benefits of increased urban tree canopy cover (TC) and reduced directly connected impervious area (DCIA) on stream water quantity and quality in the Rock Creek Watershed. The i-Tree Hydro model was used to estimate stormwater runoff volume and pollution loading for the watershed in its current condition (base case) and for various theoretical conditions (alternative case) such as increased TC and/or reduced DCIA.
