Watershed project evaluation, especially in urban-focused efforts, typically focuses on water quality improvements, habitat expansion or improvement, and a variety of other positive changes in the physical and biochemical realms. However, watershed projects are ultimately about influencing human behaviors and changing how people interact with the natural resources in the watershed. By including both physical and social indicators of change, a more holistic approach to watershed project evaluation can emerge. A Logic Model for Program Performance was used in group discussions by State Nonpoint Source Pollution (Section 319 Project) Coordinators from the Great Lakes Region to identify a set of common impact indicators for assessing Section 319 projects. These multi-state discussions confirmed the lack of focus on the behavioral and socio-economic components of water quality efforts. Results of these and ongoing discussions will establish a set of impacts that can be used both to develop state and regional reporting procedures and to create a training program for Section 319 project staff.
