Treated – Roads are considered treated when they have been decommissioned or retrofitted to reduce stormwater runoff and/or pollution.
|Accounting Period and Scale|
Information for this PM is reported into the EIP Database following the completion of road treatment projects, and should be done by December of each year.
A project is considered reportable as soon as water can flow through the newly installed improvements made as part of the project, and is being treated as designed.
This PM tracks capital improvements made to roads to reduce stormwater volume and pollution. Operations and maintenance activities are captured in the Miles of Street Sweeping PM.
This PM currently tracks the number of roadway miles treated with capital stormwater improvements each year, regardless of whether those miles of road have previously been treated. Thus, the number of miles treated for each subcategory and for this PM in general may, over time, exceed the total number of miles in the basin. If it is necessary or desired to track initial vs. subsequent treatments, a subcategory should be added to differentiate between these two.
Roads are treated by either obliterating (or removing) them, decomissioning then, or by installing retrofits to prevent stormwater runoff and pollution. This allows three different treatment types to be reported with one PM.
|Property Ownership||15 options defined for this subcategory|
The amount of forestland roads that are retrofitted or obliterated to reduce stormwater pollution through capital improvements. This PM is reported in three categories of treatment priority based on water quality risk. Treating high-priority roads reduces stormwater pollution and cost-effectively improves the clarity of Lake Tahoe.
Data displayed currently includes improvements accomplished by TMDL Urban Implementing Partners. TMDL Management Agencies are working on update to display only accomplishments completed on non-urban roads.
