CWF-13, Watershed Report Template Development
This project will lead to environmental improvements and preservation in the state’s watersheds as it will provide a framework that will streamline the development of Watershed Reports across the state at a common scale and schedule. Additionally, MPCA staff, local partners and citizen volunteers will be able to integrate the results of these studies into watershed strategies and implementation plans. The Watershed Reports will include reduction goals, measures, and broad strategies at a watershed or local planning scale with the intent of providing clear, concise information to local governments and other stakeholders to inform implementation planning decisions. An efficient approach to the development of the Watershed Report is essential in achieving the MPCA’s Strategic Objective to restore impaired waters to attain designated uses and protect those currently attaining designated uses.
