Are you a manager, scientist, or engineer who finds yourself needing to implement the NPDES Phase II “Public Elements” Minimum Control Measures for MS4 operators? Maybe you already have public education and outreach and public participation and involvement programs in place, but aren’t quite sure how to evaluate if your programs are being effective. This webinar will describe what’s being asked of MS4 operators to satisfy these elements. Using the principles outlined by environmental psychologist Doug McKenzie-Mohr, the founder of community-based social marketing, we will 1) identify some social marketing tools to foster behavioral change and 2) discuss and how to design and evaluate effective public education programs that promote sustainable behavior. When Stephanie Moret managed the water resources program for the City of Bainbridge Island, Washington, she supervised the water resources program for the City of Bainbridge Island, Washington, she supervised the development and implementation of the NPDES Phase II “Public Elements.” Participants will use Dr. McKenzie-Mohr’s methods to evaluate the success of that program in promoting sustainable behavior.
