Watershed Management Plan
The MWMO’s comprehensive watershed management plan sets out goals, strategies and implementation actions based on past studies and current data on the watershed. It informs local watershed management plans (for communities within the MWMO watershed) and is updated every 10 years in accordance with state law.
The MWMO’s watershed management plan is used in several ways:
- MWMO staff and commissioners use the plan to guide watershed management decisions and to assist in the development of annual staff work plans.
- Member organizations (i.e. local governments) use the plan to develop local surface water management plans, and to assist in scheduling and coordinating capital improvements and programs.
- Residents, businesses and other organizations within the watershed can use the plan to learn more about water and habitat within the watershed, and to be aware of the projects, activity areas and operations of the MWMO.
