Tools to Calculate Stormwater Benefits of Urban Trees

Integrating a canopy interception spreadsheet tool with WinSLAMM for site stormwater design: potential water quantity and quality benefits
This presentation was given by Dane Wudel at the pre-conference workshop for the Center for Watershed Protection Annual Conference in Charleston, SC. It reviews a spreadsheet tool developed to show how tree canopy cover modifies rainfall volume that can be fed into the WinSLAMM model.

MIDS (Minimal Impact Design Standards) Calculator
The calculator was developed to assist designers and regulators in determining conformance to the MIDS performance goals. The MIDS BMP calculator is a tool used to determine stormwater runoff volume and pollutant reduction capabilities of various low impact development (LID) BMPs.
Accounting for Trees in Stormwater Models
This paper is intended to help the stormwater engineering community more easily account for trees in runoff and pollutant load calculations so that they can more readily incorporate them into their stormwater management strategies.
Trees and Stormwater Calculator Tool
The Trees and Stormwater Calculator Tool is intended to simulate the impact of increasing or decreasing urban tree canopies upon stormwater runoff yield.
Evaluation of Natural Green Infrastructure for Watershed Planning in the City of Atlanta
This white paper describes a Preservation Evaluation Tool used to assign an evaluation score to a particular area of preservation or restoration interest and a watershed model used to understand the water quality benefits provided by natural GI and the City’s tree canopy. This tool was developed by ... read more...
