Preliminary Watershed Management Studies Available for Review
ACC’s Watershed Management Program includes assessing conditions in Athens’ watersheds and developing plans to protect, restore, and improve them. ACC Stormwater recently finished 9 preliminary Watershed Management Plans (WMPs) that are part of a larger set of plans corresponding with different watersheds within ACC. After extensive field work, sampling, and modeling, these WMPs outline the current conditions of the watershed and aim to address stream health as a whole. The newer plans also identify projects that will help restore sections of the watershed or mitigate certain pollutant sources.
