Watershed Management

Watershed management provides for a rational and scientific approach to natural systems conservation, restoration and use. The information collected from years of monitoring coupled with community knowledge is used as the basis of watershed and fisheries management planning. These plans provide recommended actions that will guide watershed management for current and future generations.

Watershed management actions include tools and programs related to protecting people and property (flood forecasting and warning), improving watershed health and monitoring overall watershed conditions in terms of the following topics: groundwater quantity and quality, surface water quantity and quality, aquatic resources and terrestrial resources.
