What is Watershed Governance?

"Watershed governance involves reorganizing and nesting our decision-making approaches to align with the ecological boundaries of watersheds, instead of primarily arbitrary political boundaries.


Successful models of watershed governance are strongly influenced by local priorities, geography, history, culture, and economics.


In all cases, the ultimate goal is healthy functioning watersheds and to ensure sufficient, clean fresh water now and into the future as the foundation of both resilient communities and a robust economy."
