HIP Provides
Real Results


Making a lasting impact in

Our Community


Since 2011, HIP staff has conducted more than 250 site visits and facilitated the completion of more than 180 retrofit projects.  HIP has invested more than $750,000 into reimbursements to participating property owners who purchased materials and labor from more than 150 local businesses and contractors. Perpetual phosphorus reduction resulting directly from HIP projects, to date, is estimated at 25 pounds per year, an amount which would cost an estimated $3,500,000 to remove via publicly-funded capital projects designed, built, and maintained by the managing jurisdictions.
