A Watershed Management Plan (WMP) is an essential first step in improving water quality in a watershed and mitigating the impacts of future development pressures. It provides documentation of existing environmental conditions and challenges while offering a vision and strategy for protecting the physical, chemical, and biological integrity for wildlife and human uses. The WMP will help us to understand the condition of the watersheds, to promote opportunities to ensure its long-term health, and to ensure that the public will be able to enjoy it for generations to come.
