MRWP - Watershed Action Plan

 

What is a Watershed Action Plan? A Watershed Action Plan (WAP) is a comprehensive plan for maintaining and improving the health of a watershed. A Watershed Action Plan includes an inventory of the watershed resources and identifies and evaluates problems within the watershed. The plan then details goals to protect the high quality resources, and actions to address identified problem areas. The actions in the plan will specify:

    • What projects should occur to maintain or improve watershed health
    • Who will do them
    • How to pay for them

By working in a partnership with citizens, local governments, and agencies, and through funding from the National Fish and Wildlife Foundation, Laura Jane Musser Fund, Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources, and the US Forest Service Resource Advisory Committee, BRWA has developed our first Watershed Action Plan in the Bad River Watershed, which is focused on the sub watershed for the Marengo River.

As of March 2013 the US EPA has approved the Marengo River Watershed Action Plan for meeting
the 9 element plan requirements as outlined in US EPA's 2003 "Nonpoint Source Program and Grants Guidelines for States and Territories" (Federal Register: October 23, 2003 (Volume 68, Number 205).
