Jordan Lake Nutrient Strategy and Nutrient Scientific Advisory Board – Mebane, Graham, Elon, and Gibonsville

AWCK has been involved in the Jordan Lake Nutrient Strategy for the last 10+ years through helping communities within the Jordan Lake watershed understand the nutrient strategy, its impacts to them, program creation, implementation of these programs, and compliance with the strategy. The Jordan Lake Nutrient Strategy (often called the Jordan Lake Rules) is legislation intended to reduce the nitrogen and phosphorous that reaches JLNutrientStrategy.Graham Stream Buffer Mailer 2014Jordan Lake. In its work with communities throughout Alamance, Guilford, and Orange Counties, AWCK has been involved in retrofit identification programs and reporting for 9 communities. This is in addition to work with Riparian Buffer Programs, New Development Programs, Stage 1 Existing Development Programs, and general compliance with the legislation.

The retrofit opportunity programs revolve around investigating communities and creating schematic designs that identify the amount nutrient reduction a BMP can create and then selecting BMP’s that are fiscally responsible and still design feasible. Additionally, AWCK’s Josh Johnson is on the Nutrient Scientific Advisory Board (NSAB) that advises NC DWR for regulated nutrient sensitive watersheds.
