Watershed Management

Watershed Mgmt PhotoA watershed is the land area from which water drains to a particular water body.  Watersheds come in all shapes and sizes and they cross county, state, and national boundaries.  A watershed planning and management approach, which is key to meeting clean water goals, represents a comprehensive and integrated way to protect all water resources, including uplands, drainage basins, wetlands, surface water, and groundwater.
