Scaling Watershed Solutions
Frente a la pandemia del COVID-19, Caminos de Agua te comparte una alternativa sencilla y efectiva para lavarnos las manos con muy poca agua y prevenir el contagio en nuestra cuenca.
Joaquin Murrieta-Saldivar explains how to use the wonderful tippy tap.
This manual provides information for neighborhood residents, municipal professionals, grassroots advocates and others who seek to implement green infrastructure (GI) strategies in their communities. It offers a neighborhood-centered perspective on GI that is tailored to work with the unique climate conditions of the southwestern US.
The Sierra Vista sub‐watershed drains to the San Pedro Riparian National Conservation Area (SPRNCA) and the City and region are currently withdrawing more water than is naturally replenished each year. This water deficit can be reduced through a holistic view of stormwater management within the subwatershed. Although this Stormwater Action Plan is specifically focused on the City of Sierra Vista it can serve as a guide for further adoption of Low Impact Development (LID) and green infrastructure practices throughout the Sierra Vista subwatershed.

Watershed Management Group is working with the City of Sierra Vista to “fill the void” in the local water budget and enhance flow in the nearby San Pedro River. Taking what we’ve learned from our experiences working at homes, neighborhoods, and businesses, we applied Low Impact Development (LID) strategies across the Woodcutter Wash sub-watershed in Sierra Vista. Modeling the flow of stormwater produced at each site, and as it flows down to the San Pedro River, revealed that LID features (e.g. rain gardens) produce positive, tangible benefits when adopted on a broad scale.
Nuestro Ecologista Cultural Joaquin Murrieta está trabajando en Nuevo León y Coahuila, Mexico, para implementar proyectos de infraestructura verde y enseñar estas estrategias a oficiales de gobiernos municipales, consultores, y profesionales. El agua cosechada regará a árboles y plantas nativas para restaurar ecosistemas locales y mejorar la calidad de vida de la comunidad.
