A watershed is the land area from which water drains to a particular waterbody. Watersheds come in all shapes and sizes, and they cross county, state, and national boundaries. A watershed planning and management approach, which is key to meeting clean water goals, represents a comprehensive and integrated way to protect all water resources, including uplands, drainage basins, wetlands, surface water, and groundwater.
Integrated Planning Survey
The WEF Watershed Management Committee is currently conducting an Integrated Planning Survey to provide information to update the Water Research Foundation Users' Guide by gathering information on each of the 10 EPA Regions on the status of integrated planning, the barriers (including lack of knowledge), and challenges associated with integrated planning. Participate in the survey through SurveyMonkey, and download the questions here.
