Abstract

This project explores the growth of alternative stormwater management through community involvement. The Oberlin Stormwater Management Project (OSWAMP) is a grassroots organization committed to restoring Plum Creek through community outreach and education, low-impact design, and water harvesting projects. Low-impact design is the main focus of OSWAMP’s efforts, extending from rain gardens at Oberlin Public Schools to the college. OSWAMP encourages the improvement of stormwater management practices for the benefit of everyone in the community.
