Are you a public works manager, urban planner, stream association member, or water quality professional who has discovered the importance of managing your local water resources at a watershed scale? The Center for Watershed Protection has designed the 2006 Watershed Institute to equip watershed professionals with the tools needed to develop comprehensive watershed plans. This intensive, interactive four-day program will focus on:
- a framework to prioritize valuable and sometimes scarce resources such as funding and staff time
- field and desktop methods needed to complete a watershed plan from beginning to end
- opportunities to interpret real data and how to integrate findings into a watershed plan
- practical resources participants can directly use in their professions to affect real change in their communities Ã¢â‚¬â€œ this includes specific project investigations such as illicit discharge detection and elimination and contiguous forest evaluation
