  • Water/Wastewater/Stormwater utility incentive programs

  • Community and customer engagement

  • MS4 and CSO permit compliance

  • Reducing flooding and pollution

  • Community-based stormwater management initiatives

  • Increasing equity and accessibility to green infrastructure solutions

  • Collecting stormwater metrics and cost-savings

  • Tracking green infrastructure assets including their operations and maintenance 

  • Targeted communication between municipalities and their customer base

  • Corporate water management and metrics for reporting

  • Data collection and integration

Mobile Application

3Rwater’s Follow the Drop mobile app and data platform helps property owners equitably gain access to green stormwater infrastructure (GSI) solutions to manage stormwater on their properties as well as supports municipalities with data collection and asset management. As an easy-to-use community engagement tool, the app uses existing rainfall sensor networks and impervious cover data to calculate stormwater volumes and then provides optimum sizes and types of GSI solutions using professional design standards specific to individual properties.   Projects can be submitted directly to the stormwater agency for a potential fee credit, rebate, or grant where offered.  The data management allows both the municipality and user to track the status of their projects, volumes of stormwater being captured and ongoing credits allocated/money-saved. 


The software is customizable to match local stormwater programs and supports private property retrofits, municipal GSI planning, asset management, collecting stormwater metrics, as well as connect utility customers to incentives (when offered).  It also helps cities that are transitioning to smart, sustainable infrastructure that need tools to engage the public and stormwater metrics for tracking milestones.

Educating the community on methods of climate adaptation is an important step to build resilient communities. The Follow the Drop mobile application supports educational outreach programs for property owners to reduce stormwater runoff and build water security.  For schools, 3Rwater also developed the Follow the Drop design-thinking curriculum to engage and empower the youth to take part in building climate resiliency. See our Follow the Drop  Curriculum.


Follow the Drop Curriculum

The Follow the Drop curriculum was created to teach students about the design-thinking process and use critical thinking skills to identify solutions to stormwater management. Developed by professionals in the field of green infrastructure, the curriculum offers real-world examples of current water issues and techniques to build resiliency. The curriculum has been designed to meet a variety of educational standards, including Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS), International Technology and Engineering Educators Association (ITEEA) Standards, and Common Core Math (CCSS.MATH.CONTENT). It includes 13 lessons and culminates with student-led green infrastructure projects to address stormwater management on campus.

The Follow the Drop Curriculum can be used to support cities’ stormwater education programs and community engagement using the Follow the Drop mobile app. It can allow students to be engaged in the design-thinking process while also identifying opportunities to capture stormwater runoff on their campuses and in their communities.
