Stormwater Solutions: Survey
As part of the Stormwater Solutions program, FoCJC conducts a two-stage survey to gauge public awareness in our identified RainScapes partner neighborhoods about stormwater and environmental issues affecting the Cabin John Creek Watershed. The initial stage of the survey is intended to evaluate public awareness before FoCJC has conducted any community education activities in a neighborhood. The anonymous responses are used to assist FoCJC in fine-tuning our program to support homeowners in stormwater management on their property. At the end of the program, we re-open the survey, using the same questions as in the first phase. Members of our partner communities are again invited to take the survey, whether or not they participated in the initial survey. We then compare the results of the initial and closing surveys to help determine the effectiveness of our outreach program, and identify opportunities for improvement.
Since 2015, we have surveyed eight communities, and we'd like to thank all the respondents for their participation in the survey. We will be publishing analysis of the Stormwater Survey results here, so check back if you'd like to find out more.
FoCJC is now partnering with the Bannockburn Community Clubhouse (BCC) in a new Stormwater Solutions Program. Phase One of this project has been the installation of a beautiful new RainScapes garden feature to control stormwater run-off at the Clubhouse, which you’ll have the opportunity to visit and learn about in the near future (fingers crossed!). Phase Two is find out what kind of stormwater issues the Bannockburn community is facing, so we can fine-tune our educational program to support your needs.
We invite all Bannockburn community residents to:
At the end of the program, we will be sending out an invitation to the closing survey, using the same questions as in the first. In the meantime, stay tuned for invitations to residents of the broader Bannockburn community to participate in future environmental education events, including tours of the BCC RainScapes project and an opportunity to meet with RainScapes Program staff from the Montgomery County Department of Environmental Protection (MCDEP).
