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.


We surveyed four communities in our 2014 - 2017 program, and are working with two communities in our 2017 - 2019 program. In our current program, the first stage of the survey is now closed, and we will re-open it as we reach the end of the program.  


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.
