Don't Drip and Drive

Location: Washington


Improving an incentive program that prevents harmful runoff by fixing vehicle leaks

STORM—a coalition of Puget Sound-area cities and counties working together to minimize polluted runoff—chose Cascadia to lead a comprehensive evaluation of its Don’t Drip & Drive. Fix that Leak! pilot program. The outreach campaign aimed to engage drivers in finding and fixing vehicle leaks. In our evaluation of this campaign, we tracked the number vehicles inspected and repaired, documented results of the media campaign and social marketing efforts by local jurisdictions, assessed cost effectiveness, and identified lessons learned. The report will help STORM’s 30 local jurisdictions improve implementation and obtain grants to fund future campaigns to reduce vehicle leaks. Cascadia also conducted follow-on interviews with a number of participating oil change shops to identify industry-perceived strengths and weaknesses of different campaign scenarios that may be used in the future.

Cascadia is very organized; their work product is thorough. I appreciated their flexibility and responsiveness. I just appreciated their ability to take our interests and put them into a tangible work product and a plan. The thoroughness of their work really led to a product that was very relevant to us and that we still use in our work. As a whole, the firm seems to be much more comfortable with field work than other consultants.
