Basins and Planners

Watershed Planners

Watershed Planners encourage public involvement and welcome input as they develop the tactical basin plans. Watershed Planners are responsible for river and stream water quality and aquatic habitat assessments, municipal surface water protection assistance, and the Tactical Planning Process. Planners evaluate river and stream problems and threats; identify special uses, values, and characteristics; catalyze and support watershed organizations and projects; provide funding and technical assistance to nonpoint source planning and implementation projects; and provide information and assistance to municipalities for local surface water protection.
