I am looking for information to help the communities I work with address pool discharges. Has anyone developed an outreach effort to get people to follow local BMPs when emptying pool water? Has the effort been evaluated to see if the target audience saw your effort, are aware how to dispose of pool water, and if they actually followed through with proper disposal(behavior)? What tools were used to reach people? What were the barriers? (This ties back to the MS4 regulatory program).

Thanks for the help.
