Tracking NPS Pollution and Stormwater for Long Island Sound 

Posted on Friday, March 22nd, 2019 | Posted in News

The Commission, in cooperation with the Long Island Sound Study Watersheds & Embayments and Water Quality Monitoring Workgroups, is inviting proposals to develop a Nonpoint Source Pollution and Stormwater Tracking Tool for Long Island Sound.

This proposal is the second phase of a project that began in 2014, a contractor evaluated existing BMP tracking and accounting tools to evaluate nutrient reductions from stormwater and urban and agricultural nonpoint sources.

The Chesapeake Assessment Scenario Tool was the recommended tracking and accounting framework most appropriate and feasible for the Long Island Sound watershed.

Today NEIWPCC is seeking a contractor to develop and implement a tracking and accounting system to evaluate nitrogen reductions from stormwater and nonpoint sources (NPS), based on the previous recomendations.

The ultimate goal of the tracking tool is to support long term evaluation of nitrogen reductions from stormwater and NPS in the watershed and allow for accurate assessment of progress toward meeting Total Maximum Daily Load goals.

Successful completion of the Project Tasks should result in the development and implementation of a NPS and stormwater tracking tool and quantitative assessment of nitrogen load reductions associated with NPS and stormwater BMPs for several selected sub-basin(s) in Connecticut and New York. The deadline for proposals is April 30, 2019 at 12 (noon) EST.

There is a total of $115,000 available for this RFP.
