EDWA is developing an Upper American River Watershed Plan to create a resilient watershed that can fulfill the ecological, economic, and social needs of the region through implementable, collaborative, and integrated strategies. To provide feedback on the direction and content of the plan, we are facilitating an Upper American River Watershed Planning Group. We are awarded a 2021 Cooperative Watershed Management Program Phase I Grant to form the Upper American River Watershed Planning Group and start watershed planning, action, and project development.
The watershed plan is under development. A draft watershed plan is anticipated by June 2023.
Watershed Planning Group
The Upper American River Watershed Planning Group is a diverse group of stakeholders, including local land use authorities, water purveyors, resource conservation districts, non-governmental organizations, Tribal governments, and federal agencies. The planning group meets regularly to provide feedback on the direction and content of the watershed plan.
