dc.description.abstract This thesis investigates the motivational factors and personal characteristics of individuals who are willing to participate in stormwater quality assessments at construction sites. Prior studies have shown that the effectiveness of stakeholder involvement in decisions that require knowledge of complex environmental issues has been limited by a lack of knowledge (Smedley, 2012). This research explores the effectiveness of several training approaches in improving stakeholders' knowledge, as well as on the willingness to volunteer and on the amount of time willing to volunteer. The training approaches consisted of various combinations of three training components: a PowerPoint demonstration, an interactive demonstration, and a statement of endorsement from a public official to use the data collected by volunteers.
