Watershed Planning

Volunteer water monitoring can be a part of assessing the watershed.When it comes to improving your local lake, river or stream, it takes an approach that looks at how the land affects the water and that involves those that live in that area.

Effective watershed improvement starts by involving the community and those experienced in natural resources in creating a long-term comprehensive plan. Like a road map directing you from the start to finish of your effort, the plan helps you create a strategic, targeted plan for making changes in your watershed.

The DNR can assist through our Watershed Planning Grants, which give you the resources to put together an effective Watershed Management Plan.
