Event Title

Sound Impacts 2.0

Presentation Abstract

In 2015, Stewardship Partners began creating a pilot impact metrics portal for Puget Sound called Sound Impacts (www.SoundImpacts.org). Now in its 4th year of operation, the portal tracks and provides data-based storytelling resources for 6,332 individual projects that have an estimated annual impact of managing 815,258,094 gallons of stormwater. Dozens of organizations and agencies are using Sound Impacts to track and catalog their efforts and others are using it as they consider how and where to make new investments in ecological restoration and green infrastructure. In 2020, Sound Impacts will undergo a redevelopment to add ecological impacts and co-benefits beyond stormwater such as carbon sequestration, habitat, health and economic value, as well as build out the data analytic dashboard making it easy to see and measure individual as well as collective positive impacts (aka footprints and fingerprints). Opportunities to link Sound Impacts to other tools (Puget Sound Info, Stormwater Heatmap, Actions to Impacts and others) are in development.
