ABSTRACT

Increasingly severe coastal storms and rising seas are causing coastal communities in Maine, and throughout the country, to experience loss of land along shorelines. However, not all the increases in coastal erosion are due to the effects of seawater – fresh water runoff from upland areas has important impacts as well. This webinar will present CCSWCD’s recent work to further the practice of coastal stabilization in Maine. This approach incorporates a greater emphasis on analysis of upland hydrology than has traditionally been applied to this work, in order to understand how human modification of drainage systems and coastal wetlands through coastal development affects erosion of shorelines. A key aspect of CCSWCD’s work on this subject is to promote the use of “living shorelines” for bluff stabilization over traditional “hard” approaches like concrete or riprap.

The first part of the presentation will consist of an overview of new “tools” developed by CCSWCD. The tools consist of a decision tree to walk an assessor through a repeatable process when evaluating a bluff and an in-depth plant guide that will lead landowners to plants that are best suited for each area which will differ given soil type, distance from the shore, and sun. The second part of the presentation will include application of this approach at several case study sites throughout Casco Bay in Maine. The case study locations include both estuarine and small freshwater wetlands. The presentation will conclude with an overview of the current regulatory environment and discussion of future work to promote living shoreline approaches to coastal stabilization.“

Sample Recovery Potential Screening Tool

ABSTRACT

Monitoring under the Clean Water Act has identified tens of thousands of polluted US water bodies that are in need of restoration. Many healthy waters without watershed protection strategies are also at risk of becoming polluted. This webinar presented the Recovery Potential Screening (RPS) Tool designed by EPA to help government and private programs compare watersheds and plan their efforts for greater likelihood of restoration and protection success. Over the past 14 years the RPS tool has assisted state water quality programs, local watershed groups, river basin managers (US and international), tribes and federal environmental agencies, with projects in over ¾ of states and territories.

How Ohio EPA Generated Funds to Address the Loss of Ecological Function and Biological Diversity Threatening the State’s Water Quality

Held Wednesday, May 2, 2018 - 3:00 p.m. - 4:30 p.m. EST

INTRODUCTION

Brenda Zollitsch, Policy Analyst, Association of State Wetland Managers [PowerPoint Presentation]

PRESENTER

Tom Harcarik, Ohio Environmental Protection Agency [POWERPOINT Presentation]

ABSTRACT

Ohio EPA established the Water Resource Restoration Sponsor Program (WRRSP) in 2000 to help address the loss of ecological function and biological diversity threatening water quality in Ohio. WRRSP funds specifically target the protection and restoration of the highest quality aquatic habitats and biological communities. WRRSP funds are generated by advancing the interest to be paid on loans awarded through Ohio’s wastewater State Revolving Fund (SRF) loan program that is administered by Ohio EPA’s Division of Environmental and Financial Assistance (DEFA).

The SRF loan program provides below-market rate financing to Ohio municipalities for the planning, design and construction of wastewater infrastructure projects. Participating SRF loan recipients voluntarily agree to “sponsor” a WRRSP project as part of their loan by entering into a formal sponsorship agreement with the WRRSP project implementer. As of October 2016, the WRRSP program has awarded $165 million in funding for 128 projects. The WRRSP has successfully protected 4,500 acres of wetlands and 399,225 linear feet of streams. The WRRSP has also removed 12 dams and restored 703 acres of wetlands and 119,539 linear feet of streams.

This webinar will present an overview of DEFA’s Water Resource Restoration Sponsor Program (WRRSP) including program administration, technical criteria, and summarize the success of the program.

Note: To qualify for WRRSP funding, a project must either by itself, or in concert with other past, present or future projects, result in the full protection or restoration of the targeted aquatic resources. Streams must either be in attainment of or be fully restored to at least the warmwater habitat (WWH) aquatic life use. Wetlands must achieve or be restored to a Category 3 designation. Eligible projects include stream and wetland protection through fee-simple property acquisition, and stream and wetland restoration projects that correct impairments to those resources. Typical stream restoration projects include, but are not limited to, dam removals, stream restoration using natural channel design and riparian zone revegetation. Similarly, wetland restoration projects include, but are not limited to, invasive species control, restoration of hydrology by breakage of drain tiles and other rehabilitation efforts.

Mapping tidal wetlands and their losses on the U.S. West Coast: New methods, new insights

ABSTRACT

Co-investigators: Correigh Greene1, Van Hare2, Brett Holycross2, Andy Lanier3, Hiroo Imaki1, Tanya Haddad3, Randy Dana3, Walter Heady4, Kevin O'Connor5

How can we be more effective in our work to conserve and restore estuarine wetlands on the U.S. West Coast, both under current conditions and projected future sea level rise? The first step is to make sure we have accurately mapped the historical and current extent of estuarine wetlands. Existing comprehensive tidal wetland mapping (the National Wetland Inventory) has limitations for these purposes: it does not explicitly map former tidal wetlands (which represent restoration opportunities), nor does it use water level models or high-resolution elevation data (e.g. LIDAR) to accurately identify areas within tide range. Therefore, our team, coordinated through the Pacific Marine and Estuarine Fish Habitat Partnership (PMEP), recently generated new maps of current and historical tidal wetlands for the entire contiguous U.S. West Coast (Washington, Oregon, and California). The new maps use LIDAR digital elevation models (DEMs) and NOAA water level models to establish the maximum extent of tidal wetlands, and they represent a major step forward in accuracy and utility for restoration planning and analysis of wetland loss and conversion. The maps include former tidal wetlands within current tide range (such as diked lands), which represent restoration opportunities. Using this new mapping, total current and historical tidal wetland area for the West Coast is approximately 360,000 to 370,000 hectares. Building from this new base, our team developed an indirect method for mapping tidal wetland losses, and created maps of these losses for 55 estuaries on the West Coast; these 55 estuaries represent about 98% of historical West Coast tidal wetland area. Based on this assessment, about 85% of tidal wetlands have been lost from West Coast estuaries; losses were highest for major river delta systems. The new maps will help interested groups develop improved action plans for estuarine wetland habitat restoration and conservation, and will also provide a base for understanding and predicting future changes with projected sea level rise.
