Hi Gail,

thanks for taking the time to talk with me today.

What I would like to know is if there is any research out there that supports the idea that:

When neighborhoods 4 to 6 blocks on each side of a river in an urban community join together to form a "river district", that they can more effectively: 

1) launch, market and sustain nonpoint management best practices for home owners and tenants
2) Actually make a difference in the health of the river and its riparian areas
