Subwatershed Plans

2018 Subwatershed Plans now available for public comment

The English River Watershed completed “Phase 1” comprehensive watershed planning in 2015. The goal of this project was to take an inventory of the physical environment, complete hydrologic modeling on the basin scale (HUC-8), collect baseline water quality data, engage landowners in the planning process, and formulate watershed improvement recommendations based on data public input. The entire plan, titled the English River Watershed Improvement and Resiliency Plan can be found on the English River Watershed website.

Beginning in Fall 2017, the English River Watershed began the “Phase 2” subwatershed planning process, which is expected to be complete in December of 2018. The goal of this phase was to discover priority areas on the subwatershed level (HUC-12) for targeted implementation of cost-share funds. The plans are intended to introduce many of the tools and analyses that can be used by municipalities, SWCDs, the WMA, and other organizations when considering watershed improvement projects.

If you would like to submit a public comment regarding any of the 14 subwatershed plans, comments can be emailed to Ben at bcurtis@englishriverwma.org. Comments will be considered and incorporated into the final plans based on the discretion from our team.
