    LCBP Seeks to Develop Urban Stormwater Guidance Document

    The Lake Champlain Basin Program (LCBP) announces a Request for Proposals (RFP) for services to develop an urban stormwater guidance document for municipal officials in the U.S. portion of the Lake Champlain Basin. Up to $43,400 is available for this project. The successful applicant will also provide education and training to incorporate cost-effective runoff reduction techniques in the routine upgrade and maintenance of existing stormwater management to enhance water quality initiatives.

    The project will include the following components:
    1. A guidance document that informs municipal officials of the benefits of good stormwater management and green infrastructure techniques including maintenance approaches for each identified technique aimed at improving water quality.
    2. A ranked list of cost effective and publicly appealing runoff reduction strategies with regional examples.
    3. A proposed curriculum and implementation plan for at least six (6) training sessions, divided between Vermont and New York, for municipal officials in the Lake Champlain Basin.
    4. A long-term plan for hosting the deliverables outlined above in Tasks 1, 2, and 3 online (preferably on, but other sites will be considered). Online materials should be all-inclusive and available for public use.

    This work will help to achieve the goals of LCBP’s long-term management plan – Opportunities for Action: An Evolving Plan for the Future of the Lake Champlain Basin. This project is supported by funds awarded to the New England Interstate Water Pollution Control Commission (NEIWPCC) by the US Environmental Protection Agency (US EPA) in support of the Lake Champlain Basin Program.

    To obtain a copy of the Request for Proposals, visit or contact Stephanie Castle, LCBP Technical Associate at (802) 372-3213 or (800) 468-5227. Proposals are due in the LCBP office on January 15, 2016 at 4:30 p.m.
