The intent of this report is to present the data collected, evaluations, analyses, designs, and cost estimates for subwatersheds in Jericho under a contract between the Chittenden County Regional Planning Commission and Watershed Consulting Associates, LLC. Funding for the project was provided by the Vermont Department of Environmental Conservation’s Ecosystem Restoration Program. The plan presented is intended to provide the watershed’s stakeholders a means by which to identify and prioritize future stormwater management efforts. This planning study presents a recommended collection of Best Management Practices (BMPs) that would address specific concerns that have been raised for these areas. In particular, there is great need to reduce stormwater impacts including phosphorus and sediment from stormwater runoff to receiving waters within the Town and the greater Lake Champlain Basin in light of future regulation under the Lake Champlain Total Maximum Daily Load. Although there are other BMP strategies that could be implemented in the watershed, these are the sites and practices that project stakeholders believe will have the greatest impact and probability of implementation. These practices do not represent a regulatory obligation of any type, nor is any property owner within the watershed obligated to implement them. Please contact CCRPC if you would like a copy of the referenced Appendices.
