Our organization runs a successful behavior change program for homeowners reducing pollution in the Elizabeth River. We have had a lot of discussion recently on how we can quantify the pollution reduction impact of those behavior changes like scoop the poop, not flushing medicines, preventing leaf litter from entering the storm drain, etc. I am coming up empty on scientific data backing up the amount of pollution these behaviors can prevent from entering our river. Has anyone else tried determining these metrics before? Can anyone point me in the direction of helpful resources, groups or government agencies that could provide quantifiable results?
