Planning and Implementing at a Watershed Scale

The physical connection between tributaries and larger streams and rivers, between surface and ground water, and between wetlands and all of the water sources, warrants the need to assess, plan and implement activities at the watershed level.  Our Council brings together a diverse set of stakeholders to develop and advance commonly supported water quality goals.  What we can achieve together includes:

  • Information. Gather, evaluate, and disseminate information pertinent to watershed health.
  • Projects. On-the-ground projects and educational campaigns.
  • Outreach and Engagement. Identify and engage the public, partners and stakeholders.
  • Education. Increase knowledge, awareness and understanding to promote balanced stewardship.
  • Resources. Assemble money and resources.
