TELR v1.0 demo data is available
Stormwater TELR is an online platform for direct use by municipalities to inform stormwater planning, improve communications with annual MS4 permit requirements and demonstrate compliance. TELR relies upon local urban drainage and structural and non-structural BMP data generated by the municipality to quantify average annual runoff and particulate loading to receiving waters. Municipalities that complete their MS4 mapping per the Guidance Document can upload and view their unmitigated results. Go to www.swtelr.com to view demo data. Functionality for municipalities to upload MS4 spatial data is coming soon.
Parcel RAM v1.0 demo data is available
Parcel RAM is an online spatially based assessment and tracking system for urban parcel site design improvements. Rapid parcel evaluations are conducted to determine if an urban parcel is runoff neutral. Data is managed by APN and can used to track, manage and report information to demonstrate compliance with Post Construction Requirements (PCRs). Parcel RAM also provides a simple tool to educate the public on the value of Slow It Spread It Sink It campaigns and incentives for land owners. Data is directly available to inform TELR annual loading estimates. Go to www.parcelram.com to view demo data. Functionality for municipalities to enter parcel assessment data is coming soon.
BMP RAM v3.0
BMP RAM is a full structural BMP asset management tool available to municipal stormwater managers. BMP RAM improvements include the addition of bioretention and biofiltration BMP types, fully updated technical and user guidance documentation, improved usability, speed and responsiveness. BMP RAM is ready to use any tablet or phone. Data is directly available to inform TELR annual loading estimates. Visit www.bmpram.com to view demo data.
MAP YOUR MS4
Detailed step by step guidance for municipal staff to leverage available existing local and regional data to delineate urban drainage catchments and associated receiving waters, define urban land uses and other critical spatial elements necessary to quantify and track hydrologic and water quality benefits of urban stormwater improvement actions. This mapping guidance document will continue to be refined based on user suggestions and feedback. Check back often to ensure you have the most current version.

E.14 PEAIP Item; Methodology to inventory and quantify BMP effectiveness and prioritize maintenance
The following memo summarizes the functionality and uses of the BMP Rapid Assessment Methodology (BMP RAM) being developed by 2NDNATURE and LIDI. Municipalities intending to utilize and adopt BMP RAM into their stormwater program can download this memorandum, revise 2 specific items in red on Page 1 and submit directly to the RWQCB as documentation of the proposed methodology to meet the respective E.14 permit section requirements.
E.14 PEAIP Item; Methodology to Quantify Pollutant Load Reductions
The following memo summarizes the functionality and uses of the Tool to Estimate Load Reductions (TELR) being developed by 2NDNATURE and LIDI. Municipalities intending to utilize and adopt TELR into their stormwater program can download this memorandum, revise two specific items in red on Page 1 and submit directly to the RWQCB as documentation of the proposed methodology to meet the respective E.14 permit section requirements.
