The informal motto of the tactical basin planning process is to "Protect the Best and Restore the Rest" as it relates to surface waters of Vermont. Every 5 years, an updated Tactical Basin Plan issues a review and analysis of new water quality data and provides strategies and objectives for water quality improvements. Watershed projects, carried out by local and statewide partners, are necessary to achieve objectives identified in the plan.  

What's New?

The 2018 White River Tactical Basin Plan is actively being developed with help from watershed partners and stakeholders. Projects from assessments and inventories conducted in the White River Watershed have been added to the Watershed Projects Database and can be accessed by the public. New projects can be added to the database by contacting your Watershed Planner (click the proceeding link to automatically send out an email). A calendar for the 2017 planning year has been developed and can be reviewed below.
