Basin 14 includes the lands and area drained by the Ompompanoosuc, Stevens, Waits and Wells Rivers. The underlying objective of the Basin Planning Process is to protect the high quality surface waters of the basin and to restore those waters of the basin that do not meet the Vermont Water Quality Standards. DEC is working collaboratively with other state, federal, non-profit and volunteer organizations, and local residents for input, funding, technical assistance, and public education for various water quality improvement projects identified through the watershed planning process.
