Directions
Use the forms to score each street you survey individually.
1. Land Use
Look for what types of buildings or uses of land are along the street. For every building
you see, as best you can, place it in one of the categories listed below and write a tally
mark for each building on the Land Use Data Chart.
a. Automotive- auto repair shops (ex.Jiffy Lube) or car dealerships
b. Agricultural- farm area with crops, horses, or cows
c. Food Services- restaurants and fast food
d. Government- city hall, courthouse, public works, etc.
e. Industrial- manufacturing, recycling, warehouses
f. Offices- business offices, doctors offices, realtor offices
g. Recreation- parks, gyms, bowling, golf
h. Retail- shopping centers, stores, or malls
i. Residential- houses, neighborhoods, or apartment complexes
j. Schools- public or private schools (does not include daycares)
k. Other- for a use that does not fit in these categories, write it in the Notes section
2. Water Impacts
For this section, mark an X in the blanks provided to provide data for the following
scenarios.
a. LITTER- Look for any trash or items dumped along the roadside the overall
amount you see for that entire road stretch based on this scale:
i. Minimal/no litter- you see only maybe 1-2 pieces of trash, but mostly
clean
ii. Slightly Littered- you see several scattered pieces of trash
iii. Littered- you see a piece of trash or small piles every few feet
iv. Extremely Littered- you see several large items and piles of trash
b. STORM DRAIN- Look at the storm drains on the side of the road to see if there is
anything in the drain hole. Mark an X if there is any litter or pinestraw/leaf debris
stuck in the hole, or if the storm drain is clean
c. Features- Mark an X if you see a bridge, ditch, or signs of erosion anywhere on
or along the sides of that road
d. NOTES- Make a note of anything unusual you see that you think could be
important to the health of the watershed.

1. Write in all the road names that your group surveyed. There should only be one listing per
individual road.
2. LAND USE- For each category listing for each road, average the surveyors results.
Example:
a. Add the total # of Agricultural land use tally marks made for Rd #1. Surveyor A saw
2, Surveyor B saw and Surveyor C saw none.
b. Total Rd#1-Agricultural= 3
c. Divide the total by the # of surveyors.
d. 3 Agricultural / 3 surveyors= Avg of 3 for Rd #1-Agricultural
e. After you have averaged the results for all the roads in the Agricultural section, add
the total for all the streets surveyed at the bottom.
3. LITTER- Average the Litter Scores for each road.
Example:
a. For Rd#1, Surveyor A & B rated it a 2 for Slightly Littered while Surveyor C rated it a
1 for Minimal/No Litter.
b. Add the scores: 2+2+1= 5.
c. Divide by the # of surveyors: 5/3= about 1.7 Litter Score for Rd #1
4. STORM DRAIN- If litter or debris was seen in storm drains along the road, add up all
sightings tallied for the road. Write the number in the boxes provided.
Example:
a. For Rd#1, Surveyor A wrote tally marks for 3 observations of litter in storm drains
and 1 of debris. Surveyor B saw 2 with litter and 1 debris. Surveyor C saw 2 with litter
and 2 with debris.
b. Add the total numbers for litter: 3+2+2= 7 Total Litter observations for Rd#1
c. Add the total numbers for debris: 1+1+2= 4 Total Debris observations for Rd#1
5. - If there is a bridge present on this road, write “YES,” and if not write “NO.”
