How municipalities can transform rainwater management.
The Soak it Up! Toolkit outlines 16 actions municipalities can take to reduce runoff and runoff pollution, provides examples of what communities are doing, and offers insights from practitioners about what works and what doesn’t.
The updated and redesigned toolkit includes a new feature: a Stormwater Scorecard to help communities assess progress to date and identify priorities for further action.
GCC developed the scorecard in partnership with the Canadian Freshwater Alliance and the Our Living Waters Network, supported by a grant from Tides Canada and Mountain Equipment Coop.
In 2017, Green Communities Canada joined with Smart Prosperity for a national roadshow of municipal workshops to review the toolkit, with a special focus on stormwater user fees.
