Watershed Health & Watershed Action Planning
Water Environment Services (WES) is transitioning our stormwater management program from a regulatory driven approach to stormwater management and focusing on improving overall watershed health. This integrated watershed management approach is focused on four main watershed health components including:
Managing stormwater runoff in a manner that minimizes flooding and stream channel degradation
- Water Quality
Reducing in-stream contaminants
Promoting the function and/or restoration of functioning and healthy streams and riparian areas
Maintaining viable aquatic insect and diverse fish and wildlife populations
WES has initiated two Watershed Action Plans focusing on these components in the Kellogg/Mt. Scott and Rock Creek basins. The goal of these plans is to develop basin specific strategies that prioritize District activities and future investments for watershed management.
