What is a Watershed Management Plan?
LGROW adopts a plan for managing as many aspects of the river as possible within its watershed area. It is called the Watershed Management Plan (WMP). The WMP documents the sources and causes of water pollution and outlines a strategy to address activities which impair water quality with a watershed. The WMP gives an action-orientated approach to address these needs and proposes solutions for effectively managing and restoring all of the intended uses in the watershed. Input from community members and key stakeholders in the LGROW watershed area is considered during the development of a WMP, to provide a reflection of the community’s desires and goals for their Watershed.
