Soil and Water Conservation with an Emphasis on Stormwater Management, Public Involvement, Erosion and Sediment Control, and Geographic Information Systems: An Internship with Warren County Soil and Water Conservation District

by Botschner, Caitlin Jean

Abstract (Summary)
The purpose of this report is to demonstrate the duties and achievements of my internship with Warren County Soil and Water Conservation District from January 2008 to June 2008. This internship focused on soil and water conservation through sediment and erosion control, stormwater management, public involvement, and Geographic Information Systems mapping. Ohio and Warren County sediment and erosion control regulations are discussed along with the regulation and implementation of best management practices (BMPs) on construction sites. Stormwater management methods such as rain gardens and stormwater basins are described. Public involvement is detailed in outreach and education activities. Applications for using Geographic Information Systems to map stormwater structures and streams are described.
