Project Description
Goodwyn, Mills & Cawood (GMC) and their team were selected by the Mobile Bay National Estuary Program (MBNEP) to conduct supporting technical studies and prepare a Watershed Management Plan (WMP) for Dog River (Upper Dog, Lower Dog, and Halls Mill) and Garrows Bend watersheds located in Mobile County, Alabama.  The purpose of the WMP is to guide watershed resource managers, policy makers, community organizations, and citizens to protect the chemical, biological, and cultural integrity of watersheds, and specifically its waters and habitats that support healthy populations of fish, shellfish, and wildlife and provide for recreation in and on the waters of the Mobile Bay estuary.

We want to know about the opportunities you feel are available to address issues in the watershed. What actions should be taken to improve and protect Dog River and the Peninsula of Mobile for future generations?
