Stormwater Harvesting + Reuse Research:

quantifying phosphorus reductions + benefits

Stormwater reuse is gaining popularity as a way to reduce urban runoff and pollutant loads to our lakes and rivers. However, quantifying the benefits of stormwater reuse, especially to meet regulatory standards, has been a key challenge for incorporating stormwater reuse into local stormwater management plans.

EOR, in collaboration with the Mississippi Watershed Management Organization and the Minnehaha Creek Watershed District, has custom-designed an easy-to-use spreadsheet calculator that quantifies the runoff volume and phosphorus reduction benefits of stormwater reuse for irrigation. This tool will help assist in determining the local feasibility of stormwater reuse.
