Take advantage of the good ideas in this booklet: Watershed Planning – from Start to Finish

Morgantown, W.Va. — In 2007, the National Environmental Services Center (NESC) published a four-part series in On Tap magazine about watershed approaches to water quality problems. The series covered:

  • (1) how to start a watershed group to tackle water quality problems,
  • (2) methods for measuring and assessing watershed conditions,
  • (3) how turn this data into a strategic plan, and
  • (4) techniques for putting the plan into action.

Each article in the series includes a case study of the Friends of Deckers Creek, a West Virginia watershed group, chronicling how that group addressed the topics in the article.
