The Androscoggin Valley Stormwater Group (AVSWG) has been tasked with the objective of inducing a reduction or elimination of fertilizers and/or pesticides for 15% of college educated residents between the ages of 35-55 in the cities of Lewiston and Auburn by June, 2018. This demographic was chosen as the target of the outreach program because of their financial stability and their relative willingness to change behavior when compared to other age groups.
We produced a survey that targets this same demographic and is meant to evaluate the effectiveness of the AVSWG education outreach program. This deliverable fits into Permit Year 3 of the BMP Adoption Plan. Additionally, we have offered informal evaluation of the BMP adoption plan activities and materials through this tool and through critical evaluation, which also fulfills a compliance task in Permit Year 3.
