This is a guidance document for tracking, evaluating and reporting agricultural implementation practices to control nonpoint source. It discusses sampling design as well as presentation of the results.
The handbook and SIDMA Web site will eventually be accessible to help groups to create professional surveys to send to targeted portions of their watersheds to collect awareness, knowledge, attitudes and behaviors information on their residents. The handbook also provides groups with important information on survey data collection methodology and how to evaluate outreach activities.
This is an online project/funding tracking system for watershed management plans. You must already have your plan written (including goals, objectives and tasks) and have cost estimates for each task to use this system. With regular updates, this tool could be very useful for reporting purposes as well as keeping track of plan and funding source status.
