    This site provides a wide range of information on stormwater, stormwater management and BMPs, and communication strategies. Almost all of it is either as text on the screen or pdf files that also contain links to other web sites and references. I didn’t see any “tools” that included any metrics for analysis. There are multiple detailed case studies from around the country with some in Great lakes states, They have a FAQ section as well as contacts for further information. Even though the site was specifically developed for members of the Water Environment Research Foundation, anyone can access the site. The site looks like an excellent resource for people wanting detailed information on stormwater related topics.
